. . . . .
During the gale on Wednesday, while the tug W.D. CUSHING, Capt. Aaron Goodwin, was approaching the schr. REBECCA near Cleveland, the foreboom pennant gave way, raking the pilot house of the tug to pieces and breaking its government safety valve. Capt. Goodwin narrowly escaped being killed. The tug S.S. COE, Capt. Pennington, went to the rescue of the CUSHING, and towed her into port. The REBECCA is bound for Detroit with a cargo of railroad iron and powder. - Cleve. Plain Dealer.
