HOLMFIRTH.

FALL OF A BURR WALL. — About noon yesterday, considerable excitement was caused in Holmfirth by the fall of a burr wall, at Lane End, belonging to Mr. James Bramall. It is generally reported that the fall of the wall was owing partly to an insecure foundation, which received a considerable shock from the flood in February last.
