On last Sunday morning about 1 o'clock the fine new hotel of Caleb Gray in Hastings, was discovered to be on fire, and so rapid had been the progress of the flames before their discovery that it was with difficulty that the occupants of the house made their escape. The fire originated in the lower story, but it is not yet known from what cause. There was an insurance of $1,200 on the building, but none on the furniture.
