Two Valuable RtcaaafaoMa Biiriin at Ike
Cairo WTkarf.
The clanging of fire belli, nbout C o'clock
yeiterday evening, ignalad tho outbreak of
a fire, and u huge column of black amoke
that arose from the Ohio at the foot of Eighth
street, located it. It wai not difficult to de
termine from any part of tho city, that a
steamboat was involved, nnd ns tho sight of a
burning steamboat was an unusual one, men
women and children poured nlong the streets
in streams toward the point indicated.
Arriving at the wharf it ijvas readily dis
covered that the attraction was two steam
boats certain, with u fair-' chance for never
al others, nnd n few buildings on the icvee
Inquiring us to the origin of tho fire we
could learn nothing further than that it lmd
broken out nmld-ships of tho sternwheol
steamer Louisiana, No person was on tho
boat at tho time, und consequently tho first
intimations of the danger were discovered by
parties on shire und on neighboring boats.
Tho flames uprcnd with marvelous rapidity,
fairly leaping from one portion of tho boat to
an other, nnd creating a heat that defied tho
approach of the firemen, who arri ved on the
ground in an incredible fbort space of time
after the alarm was suunded. The Arab',
Rough A Hoadios and Ilibornians nil rospon.
ded, but for several minute their inot de
termined eirorts were fruitless because of tho
great heat.
From the steamer Lnuiiiana the firo spread
to the wrecking steamer Underwriter, lying
immediately above. On this boat were .Mr.
Hiram Hill, the diver, Mr. Holmes and
sevoral othor persons, who, ntiwilling to ee
her burn up without an attempt, however
futile, to save her, came very nearloeing their
live. The flumes swept acroM the boat in
great volume, driving them to a coal flat, on
the outside. Frern this fiat eme of them
were rescued by tie of u kitT; lmt Hill and
Ilehnes remained at their work too long
The flames new shot acroa and around thu
flat, renJering the heat intefue byond endu
rance. A neither of the won could swim,
it was death to Jump ovorboard. nnd to re
main on the flat was inevitable destruction
by fire. At thlsjuntrturalt octurred to them
Ui swing themselves from the gunwale of tho
flat into the river, nml thus ojcajx, at least :.
the rnomnt, the heat that wa. almot run
sumlng thm. They ated upon this idea,
and by flinging wntw on each other with
their dlMnsaged hands kept their hair and
clothing from burning, and roliev od much of
the soverity of th heat. Hy this tlmo the
hend lines of the lOAt had bcrtied otT, and ihi
wind and current being up stream, the
burning masses swung around, and soon
placed tho flat, with the suffering men cling
ing to it. within rnah of atiiitautc, About
this tlmo an individual in a high W.c of in
U.xication. getting it into hii muddled pate
that somebody wanted his .iltane, dahwl
dewa the river bank, In the direction of the
buraiag bo.it, and headlong Into the river.
Sevcrnl gentlemen flew to his rcue and u".
ceoded in hauling him upon tho bank again;
but two minute had not clajnod before he
was again floundering in the wtr. A kin J
ly disposed gentleman offered him a polo, nd
was told to -go to h V when it appearing
that the man i-ould swim, he wa allowed to
take care of himself.
"When tho three Are companies com
menced playing upon the fire, it had
made .uch headway that no thought was en
tertained of saving anything more than the
hulls. One of the tugs, with the "Little
Arab'' engine on board, approached tho out
side of the Louisiana, and threw a good
stream en tho flro from that id, whllo two
good streams were poured upon It from the
bow. After working at the Louisiana a half
hour or more tho tug, with Ih'o Little Arab
bestowed her attention upon tho Underwriter,
while a second tug hitched to her stern and
towed the wreck to the Kentucky shore
Hero tho Little Arab remained, hoping to
save tho hull and the valuable machinery It
contained. About dark tho L'tttlo ltongh
and Kcady was taken over and worked to
good effect, with tho same object in view.
Heace, what there Js saved of the Underwri
ter is due to tho tireless exertions of these fire
men, Captain D. T. Tarkcr and other gen
tlemen who will bo remembered by nil who
witnessed the fire. , ,'
A lino was attached to tio stern of the
Louisiana, after the cabin had burned off, nnd
the hull Ws swung around to tho shore, giv
ing tho .Are. companies a Vettr chance to play
upon it, but it was found impossible to savo
It. Tho Louisiana, therefore may be put
down as a total loss. Sho was next to the
largest stern wheel boat on the western wa
ters, hsr capacity being 1,200 tons. Sho was
owned by Captain Phillips, of this city,; who
had, a few days before, laid her up hero "for
repairs. If tho Captain now persists in carry
ing out his original Intention, the repairs will
be rather extensive.
Tho Underwriter, tho hull of which is prob
ably damaged beyond repair, may also bo
called a total loss. She was a massive steam
er, nearly now and worth $60,000 or $60,000.
Sho was owned by tho Cincinnati "Wrecking
Co., and, it is said, wis not insured. Capt.
Phillips we understand, wus insured on
J the LouIcUun to tho amount of two thirds of
her value, which was probably, about u,uuo.
Thus commenced and onded tho first day
light stcumbout burning that ever took placo
at the Cairo wharf. No Ices than three thous-
nnd ,nen' W0,UC11 ,ind -,''l" lined tho river
ouhk, cieopiy unpresseu uy me nwuu euuinu-
i Hy of "a steamboat on fire.''
I The firemen did u noblo part, and showed
themselves "Prompt to rally at Duty' call"
fearless and untiring. No rity has a better
lire department than tho city of Cairo.

A KeecRt Trao Merolani.
Three thousand people stood upon our
wharf yesterday evening, looking at
what they considered to be the death
struggle of Mr. Hiram Hill and Mr.
Holmes. They had been driven from
the burning steamer Underwriter to a
coal flat along-side, and frdm the flat into
the water; and then, far out in tho
stream, unable to swim, they clung to
the flat, the flames fairly kissing their
faces. Tho heat was too great for tho ap
proach of a skiff or tug, and it was ex
pected that It would prove unbearable to
tho two sufferers, nnd that they would
rnlcaso their hold, and accept the quick
er death by drowning, Hut at the most
hopeless moment tho. head lines of tho
burning boat burned in two and the boat
commenced swinging towards shore.
Nearer and nearer It came, until within
fifteen or twenty feet of the shore, where
it'stopped. From this point Hill, aided
hy poles and lines, reached the shore;
but his companion, Holmes, now nearly
exhausted, sank in tho Mater. Tho heat
was too Intense tp approach, without In
curring great danger, nnd for a moment
it was thought that, after all, Holmes
would perish. Hut n young man in the
crowd, whose name we could not learn,
more self-sacrificing than the rest, plung
ed Into tho river, and iu the very face of
tho roarlngflames, rescued tho struggling
man from what promised to be his wa
tory grave. A great shout arose over this
heroic achievement, and many sought
tho young man to thank him for his he
rolsm, but feeling that his success amply
rewarded him, he left the ground, ns if
averse to the shower of compliments that
on all sides awaited him.
