About 2 o'clock this morning fire was discovered on the steamer WHITE STAR laid up at the foot of Court Street. The fire was soon out of control and Capt. A.B. Slyfield ordered her scuttled. This is the third time the WHITE STAR has been burned, one at this port a few years ago when only the cabin was burned, again in Toledo when she was burned to the water;s edge, and this morning. The origin of the fire is a mystery.
