PLEASURE YACHT BURNED.
      Erie, Sept. 30. - The elegant pleasure yacht TALLALUSA, owned by Davis and Farrar of Erie, was burned last evining off Long Point, Canada. The TALLALUSA was under command of Captain L.D. Davis, who had with him a party of ten young business men of this city. When the boat burned and the passengers were ashore the Canadian authorities seized their guns and fishing paraphernalia because they had no license, but released them later. The yacht was valued at $10,000.
