Buffalo, N. Y., Oct. 5. -- The steamer R. P. RANNEY, laid up in the lower Blackwell Canal, took fire from some unknown cause this morning. The flames were not put out until the after part of the steamer was badly scorched. It will be impossible to estimate the loss until the machinery is examined. The RANNEY belongs to the Bradley fleet of Cleveland, and is not insured.
