Amherstburg, Ont., Sept. 30. -- The dredge GLADIATOR, the largest on the lakes, valued at $00,000, was burned to the water's edge and sunk at her pier in the river near here, this morning. Twelve men, who were sleeping aboard of her, including two United States Inspectors, had narrow escapes from death by fire, only getting off with singed hair and their night clothes and leaving behind all their personal property, including gold watches, tool, etc.
