Dkhtsvctivi Fiai?About three o'clock tbls morning, flre broke out in the building owned l>y Mr Vv H Philip, and occupied aa a grocery store by Mr Henry C. Purdy, south aide of Penn. nrentie, between Four-and-a-hall and Sixth ala , which sprrad very rapidly, soon communicating with adjoining bulldlnga on either side, and de stroying nearly one hundred thousand dollars' worth of property. The leading cause of the Are proving so destructive may be stated In tbe fact hat on yes'erday the Potomac water waa ahut off' from tbe avenue, from Eighth st west to tbe Navy Yard, by order of the Government, leaving all that section of tbe city in no condition to suppress a conflagration. When discovered, tbe Are bad communicated through several atories of Purdy'a building, and in a short time made its way into tbe houae of Mr. M. G. Emerv, which was occu pied principally by Mr. E. Z 8tever, plumber nnd gas ttttrr. This nonse was soon wrapped in flames; and the adjoining houae on the east, owned by tbe estate of Raphael Sent met, was next fired and destroyed This bouse was occupied as a grocery store and dwelling, by Mr. William C. Harper, and was wholly destroyed, together with tbe entire slock and furniture of the occupant. Tbe flames rapidly spread to the next house, owned by Mr John M. Young, coach maker, and occupied by him as a coach factory; nearly all hta stock of carriages, lumber, unfinished work, ma terials of all kinds, and tools, were destroyed, together with the entire building. Tbe build ing, as our readers are aware, was formerly tbe Adelphl Theatre The fire bad made neb headway now, tbat although the water had been turned into the malna no efforts of the firemen could avail to atop It. The house owned by Mur ray A Smiriea, and occupied by tbat firm in the grocery trade, was entirely destroyed, though the major part of the stock was saved, in a damaged condition Adjoining tbe roach factory of Mr. Jobn M Young, the coach factory of Mr. Tbomas Young was slightly damaged; the stock was not removed nor damaged Adjoining Harper's store on the wwit tbe building owned by Mr. Jobn F logle, and occupied by Mr. Jobn F. Bridget, coarbmaker, was considerably damaged Mr H. saved a large portion if his stock of carriages and materials. The drill armory of tbe Washington Light In fantry was situated in tbe fifth story of Philip s building, and all their effects, consisting of unl forn s. accoutrements, flags, valuable paintings, furniture, cases, etc., were destroyed.

Pit ssxwtatior or a Cam.?Company C, Wash ington Light Infantry, met at their armory yester day afternoon at 9 o'clock, and proceeded to the residence of Cap*. It. C. Stevens, where the pre sentation took place The company having been drawn In line In the parlor of Captain Stevens, on his approach Mr. John W. Clampltt, a private of Company C, stepped forward and addressed him In exceedingly handsome and eloquent style. As the failure of this company to unite with their brother companies here In the avowal of Union sentiments has caused considerable com ment. it is matter of satisfaction to the well-wish ers or the company thst Mr. Clampltt expressed himself In sentiments decidedly national and pa triotic. In times like these our military Should, 1IW- r?sar's vmifm nnlv h* ntlM Hilt lhn*? suspicion. Captain Stevens replied as follows: Mr. Glampltt, 1 tender through you to yoorfel low-soldiers my hearty thank* for this beautiful gift, which, though to me unexpected, Is, I as* sure you, norte the leas pleasant and agreeable. Yon have alluded, sir, to the well-springs of that higher and holier nature of man which are loosened upon occasions like the present, and the gushlngs forth of living water from the great fountain of memory upon such festive scenes and socisl reunions as tne one that now engage* our minds and hearts Allow me to remark that I cordially endorse the sentiments, and feel in my own heart the beatings of a proud consciousness that as soldiers we are cementing the bonds of our union by this socisl reunion. You have alluded, sir, to the dark cloud wMch overhangs our be loved country, and to the duty of the cltisen sol dier. 1 hope, gentlemen, that the dangers which threaten to entail upon us the horrors of a civil war may be arrested; but should the worst corue, I feel that my fellow-soldiers will lie found bat tling on the side of right. Gentlemen, my heart is too full for utterance. AcceDt mv thanks for thla gift to handaomely prenentfd, and allow me t> wiah you, aa a company and individuals,a happy nev*- year and many returna.

It was gratifying to sober citizens to see one watchman who dared to do bis duty without regard to the family or blood of the disorderly yontba. He went to a yelling couple at the corner of Seventh street and the avenue, and reminded them that they were in Washington, and if they did not respect the laws of order and decency he would take them to the liiiardhouse and learn them a leason The youths quieted down uuder the admonitions of the officer.
