Description
Full Text

Detroit.---The propeller OHIO recently struck the spiles in the Detroit River, near Sandwich Point, driven some years ago for use in raising the propeller EIGHTH OHIO. A special dispatch from Cleveland to the Free press says that the OHIO will have a bill of $5,000 to pay on account of her ill luck. Her bottom on the port side, from the bilge to the keel, was caved in, the frames for a distance of 100 feet being broken in. The obstruction needs attention. She was repaired at Cleveland Drydock.
