Cherokee Phoenix and Indians' Advocate

 We have just been informed that a destructive fire happened on last Friday night to the missionary station at Brainerd.  The dwelling house, the two school houses, and the kitchen we understand are reduced to ashes.  The original cost of these buildings was probably not less than $4000.  Our informant did not learn whether any other building was burnt, or how much property was saved.  This unfortunate circumstance must, at least, for a while, put a stop to that flourishing school.  The children have already dispersed.
