Fire at the Victualling Yard Deptford.

On Tuesday forenoon a fire broke out in the Victualling Yard, which for a time threatened serious consequences. It commenced in a large kiln used for preparing oats for oatmeal, and when discovered the flames were issuing from the roof with great violence. The alarm bell was instantly rung, and the whole ot the military, police, and labourers engaged in this yard, as well as in the Royal Dockyard adjoining, were immediately on the spot. The engines belonging to the establishment, eight in number, were conveyed to the scene, and instantly brought to play on the flames. The Victualling Yard gates were closed. A mounted express was despatched to London, and in the course of an hour returned with the brigade engines from Southwark-bridge-road, Watling-street, and other stations. In the interval, however, the fire by extraordinary exertior, had been got under, and its ravages confined to the kiln, which has received much damage, a portion of the roof being completely consumed, and three quarters of oats destroyed.
