. . . . .
The prop. QUINCY reached here yesterday morning in a damaged state, which
will prevent her from proceeding on with her cargo until the necessary repairs are
made. Shortly after her arrrival in the St. Clair River Friday morning about 5:00,
and while passing the Grand Trunk Station on the Canada side, the strong current
took the advantage over her helm which caused her to take a sudden sheer and run
with full force into the Ferry stm. HURON, which lay at her dock. The propeller
had her bulwarks, stantions, and everythink forward carried away her down to her
plankshear, and for about 10 or 15 feet aft. Her cargo sustained no injury. The
Ferry boat's damages are in no way serious, being a strong and substantial hull.
