prop Mineral Rock and brig Concord arrive from Lake Superior. [Detroit Advertiser]


Detroit, July 27th.

Brig Caroline, Capt. Malott, arrived at Liverpool the 13th inst. She sailed from this port on the 15th May, consequently was fifty-nine days from port to port.

Schr. R.H. Harman, Capt. Burke, entered at Liverpool, 9th inst., to load for Cleveland.

Prop. Susquehanna, on a recent trip to Chicago, made unusually quick time according to the following report. She left this city and proceeded to Buffalo, where she loaded for Chicago and arrived on return again at this port in the short space of ten days and forty minutes. Her time to Chicago from this port and back was performed in a trifle over six days.

A seaman by the name of Owen Golgoly, serving in the capacity of second mate of the prop. Potomac, on Wednesday on her passage from Buffalo, fell from within six feet of the masthead to the deck, seriously, though it is thought not fatally, injuring him. Though badly bruised no bones were broken. He was taken to the Marine Hospital.

Brig Concord, which has been the occasion of so much litigation, civil and criminal, arrived yesterday in tow of the Mineral Rock, and has gone into dry dock for repairs.

Tug John Martin had her wheel broken yesterday by contact with a log while towing a raft to Toledo. She has gone into Clark's dry dock for repairs.

Str. Dart, of the Port Huron line, which broke her shaft some time since, will again be ready for service by next Tuesday.

Schr. Gerrit Smith was run into, or collided with, by a propeller off Saginaw Bay, at two o'clock on the morning of last Tuesday. Her bowsprit, jibboom and head gear were carried away, and other injury inflicted. She put back, and is now in Campbell & Owen's dry dock. The Captain is not definitely certain as to what propeller did him the injury, as it was in the dark, and the steamer passed along on her way without giving him a chance to learn her name. He reports meeting three on that night, the second one of which struck him. The propellers passed here that day, bound down, in the following order: first, Globe; second, Iowa, and last, Marquette.
