THE STEAMER DOVE BURNED.
Bay City, June 24. -- Fire was discovered in the hold of the steamer DOVE, belonging to Capt. Ira Holt, at noon today, and before extinguished had damaged the vessel to the extent of $3,000. The vessel has been at Wheeler's Dock all the season and was to have been thoroughly rebuilt during the summer.
The fire originated in a lot of oily rags in the hold. The DOVE is a side-wheel passenger boat which has seen service in nearly all parts of the Great Lakes and is quite an old vessel.
The DOVE ran from here to Crystal Beach, and other points all last summer.
