Full Text

The Canadian propeller BRUNO was seriously damaged by fire last Thursday night while lying at Chatham. The fire caught aft in the hold, and destroyed the greater part of her upper woeks and stern. She will be repaired at Chatham, and will probably in the course of a week or so, be as good as ever. Cause of fire unknown.
