The furniture shop belonging to Mr. Hartel took fire about 11 o'clock Wednesday night and was entirely consumed. A small barn near it was also burned. these buildings were just back of Bullene's store, and it was difficult to prevent the flames from communicating to that block. Some lumber, tools, &c., were burned. It was fortunate that the fire was discovered in time to prevent a more damaging conflagration.
A bold robbery was committed by D. S. Haggart, driver of the U. S. Express Co., in St. Jo., on Monday last. He was sent out to deliver packages through the city.

Our account of the shooting affair in the "Addition," contained a mistake, which we hasten to correct. It was not the soldier who had been playing the violin, nor his comrade who fired into the house. They left quietly and peaceably, and are known as good orderly soldiers. The firing was done soon after they left, but by unknown parties. We gave the account just as it was related to us, but are glad to be able to relieve innocent persons from the imputation cast upon them.
