      . . . . .

      BROKE DOWN. - On Saturday night last, says the Detroit Free Press, of the
26th, the steamer FORESTER, while towing a vessel on Lake Huron, broke one of
her shafts. She was towed to Newport by the FOREST QUEEN. The FORESTER
will not run any more this season. It is probable the steamer PLANET will take her
place in the line until navigation closes.
