Late on Monday night the fire was still raging amongst the cargo. The unfortunate vessel was 120 days from Calcutta, and, during her voyage home she has had continual sickness on board, and it was en- tirely owing to the indefatigable exertions of Captain Watt that she arrived at her present anchorage in the river Thames, off Shorne Mead Battery. Early on Monday morning the steam tugs Enterprise and Re. nown took up their positions on each side of the vessel. The usual preparations were made to put out the fire by steam. The thermometer was placed on tha deck, and it was found to register 80 degrees, but towards six o'clock in the evening it registered 110 degrees. Soon after Bmoke was seen issuing from every crevice in the ship, and part "f the deck burst through. On the jute being brought to the air it smouldered like a cigar, but did not blaze. The opening was immediately stopped up with mud, &c. There is a large body of fire beneath the captain's chief cabin, as well as abaft the fore channels. Should the steam prove a failure in extinguishing the fire, a quantity of holes will be bored in her deck, and the fire-engines will play upon the ship. Should that fail, she will be run ashore and scuttled. The captain of the Coastguard stationed at Gravesend ordered the men under his command to render all the assistance possible in the absence of the Bhip's ciew, who are all suffering from dysentery, and during the day they cleared all sails away from the ship.
