She is grain and package laden from Duluth to Buffalo. She went ashore Monday night and was scuttled yesterday. A tug and lighter have been sent to assist her.

On Friday the propeller NYACK, which had been unfortunate on her recent trip to Lake Superior, reached Detroit in tow of the tug BALIZE, for the requisite repairs. After being placed in dock it was found that every arm of her immense wheel was broken off, besides some damage to her shoe. Inside of twenty-four hours a new wheel was fitted to its place, and other repairs done, and the steamer once more afloat. - Detroit Report
