The following parlieulara.are from the Gihralier Chronicle : r, -l The alarm was first given at eight o'clock precisely, and was immediately follow ed by such a burst of flame from the engineer's store room as to lend lo ihe be lief that it originated among tiie oil and spirits. Every exertion was made to sub due it, and the Luge pumps were instan tly put in operation ; but ihe progress ol Ihe llames was so rapnl, mat 11 i.ec.une necessary to llood the two in'f''". which was done so clleetually, tnat it was not until tw enty minutes after three A. M. that tiny explosion took place, and then not to an extent to endanger ihe shipping in the bay, the nearest of which had al ready been tt moved by the exertions of the acting caplain of the port. Assistance, was promptly sent from the Malabar, uu-j der the personal superintendence ol Sir j (icorge Saitortus ; ami the Loeust gut up , her steam and ran along side the Missou- j ri, will, the view ol towing her into deep-, cr water, or rendering any oilier aid ; bul. j unfortunately, sho had already grounded j which rendered P. impossible to scuttle 'ier' As soon as the lire broke out, the gov crr.or ordered the waterporl gate to ''i-' opened, and proceeded himself lo ihe , wharf, from whence he despatched engines under charge of the artillery ami sappers ; but in spite of the united efforts of the crew of the Missouri and her fiiend- ly auxiliaries, the progress of the ll.unes, which at one time appeared to be got un der, was such, that at length Captain New Urn was forced to abandon his ship, after summoning a council of his own of ficers and those British ollicers about him, who unanimously decided there was no hope of saving the ship. The order was then given by Captain Newton for all to quit ihe ship, which was done immediately by ihe crew taking the water, and receiving the ready assist ance of boats sent, in anticipation of the exigency, from the Malabar and from the vessels in the harbor. Much was the state of the ship, when the ollicers and crew left her, that they saved nothing bul what they had on. Capt. Newton did not quit the ship till all had left her, about a quarter past eleven o'clock. We are happy to add, lliat the officers and crew are believed to be all saved. His excellency ihe American Minister, after securing his papers of importance relumed to liie ship, undzenl.nisly united his exertions to those of lier ollicers. The line wall was crowded until a very late hour with spectalors, anxiously watch ing llie fate of tho noble ship. The ng!u was awfully grand; until the inasis al lenglh fell overboard, the tracery of her spat and ilirouds standing out in bright relief against the dark sky, was beautiful.
