We learn from the Buffalo Commercial, of Saturday evening, that the steamer
MICHIGAN while attempting to enter Erie Harbor, ran on to the wreck of the
GOLDEN GATE, and sank. The water is shoal, and she will be got up. The clerk
proceeded to Buffalo and procured the pump belonging to the Buffalo Mutual
Insurance Co., and returned to Erie. The hull of the steamer is not insured, but
the cargo, or part of it is.
