p.2 A Propeller Burnt - The propeller Genessee Olio was destroyed by fire at an early hour on Saturday morning, at the wharf on the east side of the river, at Carthage. The vessel was built at Rochester last spring by Bram & Knapp, and was owned by E. Felden & Co. She plied regularly between Rochester and Ogdensburgh, and was commanded by Captain Chapman. She reached the former port on Friday, with a cargo of tanbark, a part of which was discharged. The fire is supposed to have been accidental. The vessel cost about $10,000, and was insured for $5,000.
