      THE BLOW YESTERDAY - ACCIDENT TO THE PROPELLER WISCONSIN. -
During the blow yesterday, the bark AMERICA, and several schooners and brigs came
into the harbor for safety. The G. KNAPP among others, came in, in a hurry, and by some
accident run into the propeller WISCONSIN, which was lying at the dock. The effect of
the collision was to make a respectable broach in the side of the propeller, which came near
alarming the passengers and crew, who were just enjoying their dinner. It will take but a
short time to repair. - Racine News.
