The schooner DEFIANCE came near being consumed by fire on Tuesday night last, at Perrysburgh. The cabins were fired, and blankets placed over the hatches to prevent discovery. All the inside work of the cabin was consumed. The fire was detected by the explosion of some substance in the cabin, and the citizens were enabled to extinguished it before it had consumed the hull of the vessel.
