      The schr. JULIA which belonged to Mr. Sloan, and had been used to bring lime from Malden to this port, while lying at the dock near the foot of Griswold Street yesterday morning, with about a hundred barrels of lime on board, caught fire from the slacking of the lime. A hole was soon burned through her hold, and she went down bow foremost. Her rigging was cut loose and secured before she sunk.
