DISASTER TO THE TUG ECLIPSE. - The tug ECLIPSE, which left Detroit recently with steam pump for the schooner MIRANDA, ashore on Port Austin reef, on reaching Port Huron collided with the tug BALLANTINE. Her stern was knocked off, which caused her to leak badly. Her mission was turned over to the tug BROCKWAY, which conveyed the wreckers to their destination.
