STEAMER BURNED.---The FREMONT, a small steamer, seven years old, owned by the Sandusky Plaster Company, was burned at the dock of the Plaster Bed Thursday morning. Not insured. The Register says her loss, though not heavy, must prove a serious one to the trade in which she was employed. A new boat is being built which will be out in a few weeks
