OMckering’s Piano-Booms and the Globe Theatre Destroyed. Loss Estimated at sl,2so,ooo—lnsur ance, $760,000. Fires in Other Places. Special Rtopofch to The Chicago Tribune. Boston, May 80.—At twenty minutes past 8 o’clock this morning, an alarm of flro was rung from Box 63, which called a portion of tho de partment to tho vicinity of 411 Washington street, whom it was found that tho roar build ings of Holey, Morso & Co.’s furniture factory woro In flames. Those buildings aro of tho most combuatiblo character, and, so rapidly did tho flraohtaiu control of thorn, that Witliin ton min utes a second alarm had to bo sounded, and soon after a general alarm, which drew tho wholo number of steamers, hose carriages, and ladders to tho econo of tho conflagration. Prom this point THE FIBB BPIIEAD northward on tbo west eido of Washington street to Fayette court, destroying several largo business buildings, and, crossing Washington street, It destroyed tho buildings lying on tho oast side between Essox street and Hayward place, including Chickoring’s magnificent piano warehouse and tho Globe Theatre. Tbo oxtromo boat of tbo burning building opposite, and tbo combustible nature of tho roof, doomed tbo en trance building of tbo theatre from tho moment it caught, and tho largo number of streams of water, which woro immediately directed upon it, wore of Uttlo avail. Within a half hour tho whole Washington street front wan a moss of llro, and tbo flames worltod steadily but surely to tbo eastward, toward tbo Thoatre building proper. Tho building was substantially in throe parts, tho entranco build ing on Washington street and a similar one on Essex street, being separated from tho audito rium of tbo Theatre and tho dressing-room, by a thick party wall. This wall withstood tho dames for an hour, bat in spite of it and tho largo amount of water, which was poured on tho Theatre from tho streams In the roar, before 10 o’clock, the Theatre building proper bad nearly succumbed, and by half-past 10 o’clock it was entirely ruined, and tho flames woro steadily marching to the eastward fanned by tho fierce wind, which was increased by the intonso heat into almost a hurricane. Tho sound of tho falling walls wore first heard •lit 9:35, when from tho roar of the place whoro tbo firo originated tbo bnok walls woro folt to bo tumbling to tho earth. Fears wore expressed for tbo safety of tbo ad venturous firemen who wore scaling tbo granite fronts with tboir hose and ladder-hooks. uunniED moving, Tho scones of Nov* 0, hi regard to the hur rying of families If) move their housobold furni ture, clothing, oto., wore repeated on Fayette court, Bremmor-ploco, and Mason street. Evoiy oipross-wagon and wheelbarrow that coaid bo ’impressed was loaded, and their contents taken to distant points, and In flomo oases to tho Common for security. Chairs and tables wore tumbled after tho legendary stylo from upper windows, while bedding and table-cloths wore carried down stairs in arms. Women wore screaming and children crying for their lost friends. Those farail ioa were prinoipally'of tho poorer class, and felt thoir losses severely. While tho fire was devastating tho region of Mason and Avery streets, the tradesmen on Washington, Essex, Beach, and ovou Ohauncey street, wore engaging teams, some of them at rather stoop prices, and pocking aboard all of tho goods wmch could bo boxed ready for re moval to somo safe place. It seems improb able, at this time, that Chounoey street should burn, but its occupants bad learned one lesson of tho evils of procrastination, and did not choose to run any risk. Tho largo wholesale houses wore depleted of goods as fast as they could bo removed, and all showed by their actions that a dread existed of auothor great Boston conflagration. SPREAD OF THE FIRE. At 8 minutes past 9. tho top of tho spire of the Beach Street Church was soon to bo on firo, having caught from tbo iutonso boat of tho fire, which was then four or five blocks away. It homed vory slowly indeed, and looked like a largo, lighted candle. Tho firemen wore soon on tlfo roof with their hoso, and, though tho steamers could not roach tho top of tho spiro with any force, they succeeded iu keeping tho firo from communicating with tho main portion of tho building. It is, of course, impossible to give at onco all of the losses, or ovou tho names of all the losers, bat it can bo said that what remains from Avery street to Boylston street on tho west side of Washington, is nearly or qnito destroyed. On tbo other side, from Hayward place to Essex street little is loft to show what existed there at 8 o'clock this morning. Tho losses on buildings destroyed, at the Assessor's valuation, foot up $500,600. Deducting 20 per cent as salvage on building materials, tbo actual looa ou real estate is $465,000. Tho losses of personal property will brir-- this amount to somo $1,200,000 at tbo largo sufferers by loss of and interruption of business are Messrs. Cmokorlug & Bona, pianoforte deal ers, whoso salesrooms havo but recently boon elegantly refitted at a groat expense, at tho cor ner of Washington street ana Hayward place. Thoir loss will bo heavy. On the Ist of Decem ber, 1852, the pianoforte manufactory of Messrs. Ohiokoring & Sons, then located a couple of blocks below thoir present was destroyed by fire. Thoir at” That time was upwards of £2G0,000 over and above tho insurance. Several firms burnt out in tho groat firo cl Hov. 0,1873, are sufforora again to-day. . unded conthol. About 12 o’clock tho fire was got under con trol, and the limits described above will com prise tho now burnt district. Plro engines wore sent hither from all tho neighboring cities and towns as far distant as Lowell. Two companies of the United States Marinos at tho Charleston Navy-Yard wore sent Jo /°£iWwd duty, and five companies of tho State Militia, which wore escorting tho Grand Army posts in their decoration day parade, are detailed for tho samo purpose.

Tho Western Union Telegraph Company have lost fifteen wires by tho fire, and communication is interrupted. Tho Fireman’s National Bank has not opened its vault, and there is reason to believe that all their securities are saved.

There could not have boon loss than 100,000 persons near tho scono of tho firo when it was at its height. Among tho firms and individuals burnt out on Essex street oto; Benjamin S.
