Some of the passengers on the excursion stm. SAILOR BOY, which rescued the crew of the burning stm. THEW on Sunday near Chicago, reported the captain " for endangering the lives of his passengers by going up to a burning steamer in a gale of wind." But they got no satisfaction. The steamboat inspectors pronounced the action of Capt. Gilson as humane and heroic, and just what any man with a heart in him would have done under similar circumstances.
