A SHIP ON FIRE IN THE RIVER THAMES. On Sunday information was received at Gravesend that a large ship was on fire about two miles below the town. It was found that the ship Night Companion 1,421 tons burden, Captain Watt, from Calcutta, owners Carlisle Brothers, was on fire when about twenty-five miles from land. The discovery was made by the sailors in the forecastle, who saw dense volumes of smoke coming into the forecastle from the main hatch. The ship was laden with jute, ginger, castor oil, and tamarinds, and the fire was ascertained to be amongst the jute. The main hatch and all the vents were stopped up, and the vessel lay to all night on Thursday, off Portland. In the morning the ship Kelson came alongside, and the captain offered to remain near the burning vessel. During the day the vessels came into cc" sion, doing a deal of damage to both. After the vessels cleared, Captain Watt set all sail and ran his ship before the wind. On arriving off Dungeness he took in a pilot to Deal, where he ordered the ship to be towed up the river Thames. At two o'clock on Sunday afternoon the pilot noticed one of the planks of the deck burst up through the heat of the flames, but the sailors battened down a wet sail over the opening. At nine o'clock the floating steam engine from Woolwich got alongside of the burning vessel.
