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.
