A Milwaukee Telegram of Monday says: Fire broke out in the hold of the propeller PHILADELPHIA, among dry goods, off Point Betsie, Saturday afternoon, but was extinguished in half an hour by the free use of water. She landed here 105 cases of dry goods for Storm, Hill & Co., forty-five cases for Landaner & Co., 50 cases for C. Stern & Bros., all of which had suffered damage from water and smoke to the extent of 40 or 50 per cent. Eighteen-hundred packages for Chicago parties also suffered more or less damage.
