Description
Full Text

The ex-revenue cutter GENERAL SHERMAN is lying near the foot of Wayne St., Detroit having just got rid of of her painters and being yet under repair to her machinery. She is now called the JOHN SHERMAN, as has been noticed, and the change from a sombre black to a clean white, trimmed with green, is very marked.

The stm. SHERMAN started up the Detroit River Monday to give her engine a trial, but met with an accident to her steam pipe and drifted stern first down the river until it could be repaired sufficiently to enable her to make her dock. The damage was not great.
