Burning of the River Queen

01 Jul

The freight steamer River Queen, which ran between Wilmington and Fayetteville, and from which Capt. A. H. Worth had only a few days since retired as commander, was burned at her wharf in Wilmington during the big fire of Sunday last.  The River Queen was owned by Mr. Bagley, and was partially insured.
