Wo are pained lo announco tho loss of
another magnillcent first-ehiss steamer by

being from tho conduct of an Irresponsible
per-on. Tho splendid steamer Dan Able,

o'clock, while lying nt tho wharf boat at
Columbus, wultlng for tlio train from Mo
bile Fortunatolv no live worn lost.
The fire seems to havo orlgtnnted in tho
cook house, nnd tho following is tho report
iiirnisncd u:
Tho third cook kindled a flro In tho
cook stovoto prepare auppor for tho pass
engers expected by tho up train, and tbon
went up stair to notify tho othor cook.
It is snppojed that ho built qulto a largo
lire or that some combustible material, a
oil or grease, was noar or porhap on the
(love, willed Ignited during his absence.
At least tho flame wore found bunting
out of the door of tho cook houio on his
return. Tho alarm was Immediately given
and tlio engineers nromotlv turned
powerful stream of water on tho flro nud
quickly subdued tho flro below. Unfor
Innately the flame had mounted tho stair
way leading to tho pantry, nnd notwith
standing all tho effort of her cntlro crow,
tho fire spread to the light wood work of
tho cabin nnd soon over tho entire boat
Word wa then pasted for all hand to
abandon her nnd let her to adrift, a aho
could not bo inved, nnd wa(
vndangorlng tho wharfboat and depot
buildings. The first engineer, Ben Mngee,
and me watciiman, uco. Hmltu, wero (o
bent upon doing everything In their pow
or tosavo tho boat that they continued to
use the hose for tomo time lonaor, not
knowing that tho Iwathad beon cut loose

aud finding herself dcertcd, wa attompt

strength to save hcrtulf. Kacli loud es

like a hoare groan for help. Tho wheels

Suddenly, a though arouiing herself for n

report was heard, and tho spectator saw
her forecastle and capstan rlso Into tho air
and fall to piece, while a showor of .parks
shot upwards to the sky, and then all was
still. A ken of powder had furnished tho
last breath to the noble steamer which died
so bravely and went out at last la u blaxo
of glory. It li said that many persons
who wltnosxed the ttbo icne actually

Soon afterwards the burning mats
