DAMAGE TO THE PROPELLER IOWA. - The Detroit Advertiser of yesterday
says: The propeller IOWA, on arriving yesterday afternoon, at 2 o'clock, in the River
St. Clair, and while passing the Grand Trunk Station, was run into by the swing ferry
HURON, which was crossing at the time. The IOWA had her larboard side stove in,
down to within two or three feet of the water, though not causing her to leak. Her arch
was broken in two, and nearly all her upright supporters carried away. A quantity of
starch in boxes, also some corn which was on the main deck, was lost overboard. She
arrived here this morning and will transfer the greater part of her cargo to the
DUNKIRK, when she will proceed on to Buffalo to repair. Her damage will not fall
much short of $8,000.
