STEAMBOAT "UNITED STATES" BURNED.--- About 2 o'clock yesterday morning, the steamboat UNITED STATES, lying on the bank of the Creek above the dry dock, was discovered to be on fire. Before the fire department could arrive on the spot, the flames had spread so as to render it impossible to save any part of her, and she was entirely consumed. She was owned by Messrs. Munger & Willard, and we learn was insured for $5,000. The machinery will probably be saved without material injury. The fire is supposed to be the work of an incendiary.
