STEAMER PEARL DISABLED. - Night before last as the steamer PEARL was lying
at the dock at Malden, the propeller BRUNSWICK, bound up, ran into her, striking her
near the wheel house, smashing in her guards, wheelhouse, &c., and injuring her upper
works to the extent of about $500. The BRUNSWICK was uninjured, having struck the
PEARL stern first. The PEARL was towed to this port yesterday, and we learn will be
repaired so as to resume her trips on Monday next. Detroit Adv. 30.
