Buffalo, June 21. -- The steamer CITY OF PARIS had a narrow escape from destruction by fire on her trip down Lake Erie. She arrived this morning with her cabin and contents completely burned up. She took fire apparently in the cook's galley about 200 miles up the lake yesterday, and was saved with difficulty by good fire fighting.
