Companies represented by the C.E. and W.F. Peck, it is learned, carried $70,000 insurance on the steamer GEORGE PRESLEY, which burned in Green Bay, yesterday. The PRESLEY was owned by the Mono Transportation Company of Cleveland, and is a total loss. The fire started in the paint locker just as the vessel was abreast Washington Island, where she drifted ashore after being abandoned by her crew. She was bound for Mileaukee, light and after a cargo of ore. Her Captain, Frank Folson of Marine City, and the crew are now on the way down on the steamer W.W. BROWN.
