Buffalo.---While the engineer and fireman of the propeller JAMES P. DONALDSON were at work painting her boilers one of the firemen slipped from the top of the boiler, and, in falling, threw his lamp in a pail of paint. The flames burst out and damaged the boat to the amount of $1,000. Two tugs put out the fire.
A survey of the burned propeller J.P. DONALDSON fixed the loss at $1,232
