STEAMER PLANET DISABLED. - By information received from Detroit by
the MAY QUEEN, this morning, we learn that the steamer PLANET on her trip up,
while between Grand Island and Marquette, became disabled by the breaking of her
machinery and was towed back to Grand Island by the steamer LADY ELGIN, to
await repairs. We understand that the damage is to her cross-head and front links
which are broken, and her piston rod injured. How long she will be delayed by the
accident is uncertain, though it is certain that she will not be able to take her place
in time to leave this port Thursday evening. - Cleveland Herald.
