A Detroit correspondent says: "Several experts from Chicago held a survey on the steamer CITY OF ROME here, a few days ago, preparatory to an action pending regarding injuries sustained by the vessel, which was aground in Lake Erie below the mouth of the Detroit river during the ice jam of December last. The Chicago party included J. B. Bates, Capt. James A. Calbick Capt. Keith, Capt. Rand of the CITY OF ROME, and W. J. Wood, naval architect. Mr. Wood took away numerous sketches and measurements, with a view to making two scale drawings of the vessel in her present condition The case will probably come up for trial about the middle of July.
