When you start a new game in Colossal Cave, you will find yourself in front of the well house. To get the lamp, you will need to enter the building. You can do this by approaching the door and cycle through your actions (right-click) until you get the manual action of opening the door. Left click when you are next to the door with a flick of the hand and it will open.

Head inside, and on the left, the first thing you will find on the table is the lamp. Do the same thing you did with the door to open it and you’ll pick up the lamp. You should also pick up water, food and the key from this room.
