THE LOSSES BY THE EIGHTH OHIO FIRE.
      The old steamer EIGHTH OHIO, which was burned to the water's edge on the Windsor side of the river early yesterday morning, was insured for $10,000 a few weeks ago. She was built in Sandusky, we believe, nearly fifteen years since, as a side-wheeler, and converted into a propeller in 1874 or 1875. She had nothing on board except a few cords of wood. The tugs LYON and BOB ANDERSON, lying alongside, were both considerably damaged, the former probably as much as $2,500, the latter about $500. The tugs are owned by Captain Demass, and, having been out of commission all the season, were, very likely, insured. - Detroit Post.
