      The propeller TROY was burned to the water's edge last night.
      The TROY was built in Cleveland, and came out last spring, was a propeller of the first class, owned principally by Capt. D.P. Dobbins of Erie, who sailed her last season.
      It is supposed to have been the work of an incendiary. Whether insured or not, we have not learned.
