Detroit (Steamboat), broke machinery, 1 Oct 1847


Description
Full Text

The steamer DETROIT, plying between here and Sault Ste. Marie, broke her walking-beam and did considerable damage to her cylinder on her last trip up, off manitou Island. She succeeded in running to False Manitou, under canvas, and lay there until the EMPIRE came down,when her Captain and passengers came back to this city. We understand the SAM WARD will take her place until she can be towed down and repaired. - Det. Adv.

The SAM WARD came down from the Sault, yesterday, with the DETROIT in tow. The damage done to the cylinder is serious, and such that a new one will have to take it's place. A new walking beam is also required before she will be in service again. - Detroit Adv.
