Hotel Burned.
    
NORWALK, O., Jan. 19. - [Special] - Between 3 and 4 o'clock this morning a fire broke out in the Brerlinville house at Berlinville in a room occupied by Vanderpool & Young for a grocery store, and before assistance could be obtained the fire had gained too great a headway for control.  The entire building and contents were burned.  The balance of the building was occupied by Jonah Young as a hotel and dwelling.  The family were sleeping above the room in which the fire originated, and barely had time to make their escape.  The grocery stock was insured for $800 in the Glens Falls insurance company and the building for $1,600 in the Ohio Mutual of Salem.  There was no insurance on the household goods.
