A fire broke out on the American ship May Flint, -well known in Hono lulu, on the night of the 5th, says the Kobe Chronicle of the 7th, and proved a most difficult one to extinguish. It was 0 p. m. when the ship was dis covered to be on fire, and Mr. Sim as Superintendent of the Settlement Fire Brigade being at once apprised of the outbreak called out his men. Two pumps were put aboard lighters and taken to the ship, where work was at once commenced, but it was soon found that more pumps were needed, and these were brought out by lighters towed by Mr. Sim's launch. Firemen were stationed in the 'tween decks with the hose, but failed to make any impression upon the fire, which, des pite their efforts, made headway. At 4 o'clock in the morning the firemen were driven out of the 'tween decks by the intensity of the heat and smoke. It was then decided to beach the ship. Mr. Sim's launch and two launches belonging to Messrs. Nickel & Co., which had been standing by, towed the vessel by the stern down the bay and beached her in Z fathoms of water. All this time the pumps had been kept going continually, and now, in order that more effectual work might be done, the yards were all swung on the port side and the ships was listed. A large hole had been made in the port side of the ship, and the launches now tugging at lines fastened to masts pulled the vessel over with the object of filling her with water, bun tna fire could not easily be extinguished because of the two water-tight com partments, but at 11 o'clock the fire was at last reported to be out. Pumping, however, was continued and at 12 o'clock it was aiscovereu after about 100 cases of kerosene had been removed that the ship was burn- ins still. While part of the fire bri gade continued work at the pumps the other cut .holes m tne water-nguu compartments, and at 4 o'clock, when the shin had got 32 feet of water in her.' the fire was considered to have been completely extinguished. &ne ib now filled with water to within two inches of the deck. Tr has not vet been ascertained now the fire originated or in what part of the ship. The cargo was kerosene oil, hnr evidently the oil had not been ig nited, or the. only thing to have been -done would have been to tow ner oui into the middle of the bay and let her blaze.
