The Loss Of The China - It is said that the persons on board this propeller - whose burning we announed Monday, - were so narrowly pursued by the fire when the America came to their rescue that only a small portion of the vessel was tenable, and had the help been a few minutes later,they would have had to take to the water, as all the boats but the lifeboat were burned, and the latter was on the top of the cabin and could not be got at. Soon after the America had arrived upon the scene four other steamers hove in sight. The loss is $34,000; insured for $24,000.
