Capt Thomas Wilson, of Cleveland, was in the city this weekend on business and to look after the damages, if any, on the WALLULA, which will be docked for examination and repairs. She is said to be leaking considerably since her release from Pan Cake Shoal, Lake Superior, where she grounded in a fog on her passage down from Two Harbors with a load of ore. She jettisoned several hundred tons before being released.
