Orillia, Sept 3 - Vessel Burned. - About 3 o'clock this morning the tug ISABELLA, owned by Boultbee & Burk, lying at Atherly's wharf, was discovered to be in flames, and was totally destroyed. Owing to the timely assistance of some men who arrived shortly after the alarm was given, she was pushed out into the lake, thus saving the greater portion of the village, which must otherwise have perished, owing to the connection between the steamer and the Mills. The total loss is about $8,000; insured for $4,000.
