Vessels Burned. We have omitted, in the hurry of making up our list of losses by the great fire, to notice the fact that two vessels, the schooners Arabia and Harbridge were badly damaged by the fire. The former was loaded with wheat and was alongside of Messrs. Fitzhugh & Co.’s mill when the fire broke out, and before she could be removed, was enveloped in flames. The fire was finally subdued, but not until her foremast and hull above water was nearly destroyed. Her cargo is probably injured to some extent by the water, but not very badly we think. The Harbridge was loaded with stone, and her upper works, spars, and rigging, were entirely destroyed. The Arabia was owned by Messrs. Fitzhugh & Co., and is a new vessel. The Harbridge is owned at Sacket’s Harbor, we believe.
