Correspondence of the Inter Ocean.

JANESVILLE, Wis., March 26, 1877.
A fire broke out in the second story of the old Ogden House at 3 o'clock this morning. The fire department promptly responded to the call, and suceeeded [sic] in extinguishing the flames before any serious damage was done. Fred Day's restaurant, in the store below, received a thorough wetting down from the seas of water that came gushing through the floor. Mr. Day says he prefers water to fire.
