Steamer WATERLOO. - We learn that the little Steamer WATERLOO, Capt. Staring was entirely destroyed by fire last night, at Black Creek, Canada, nearly opposite the head of Grand Island. Nothing was saved but the clothes of those on board. We believe she was owned principally by Capt. Staring and have not learned whither there was any insurance upon her or not.

      STEAMER WATERLOO. - This vessel was destroyed by fire on Wednesday night at Black Creek, Canada. Capt. Staring, her commander, was the principal owner, and we learn from him that she was insured to the amount of three thousand dollars in the Lexington Co. The steamer was entirely consumed, and those on board barely saved their clothes.
