BARQUE NORMAN --A fire broke out last evening in the bow of the barque NORMAN, which had been laid up for the winter on the opposite side of the Creek near Hatch's Elevator. The firemen were soon at the marine block on Ohio Street and hoses were immediately run across the Creek in boats, and the fire was soon extinguished. The damage will be light. The NORMAN had started some ten days since for Chicago, with a cargo of railroad iron, but encountered the storm near the head of the lake and returned to port.
