The Steamer Queen of the West. - We learn from the Hamilton Spectator that the fire which destroyed this fine steamer broke out in the stoker's room, very soon after the boat had made fast and the passengers had all left. It is fortunate that the calamity did not happen sooner, as many lives would have been lost. The fire burst out very suddenly, and the boat was loosened, and drifting from her moorings, rested against the wharf of M. W. Brown, which together with a storehouse full of valuable goods was in imminent danger. Just then the steamer Rochester came up, and Capt. Mason promptly sent boat and made fast to the burning steamer, which was towed clear of the wharf and left to burn in shallow water. The Queen was on the Toronto and Hamilton route.
