Full Text

MACKINAW.---The propeller CLYDE of the Lehigh Valley Line, arrived here at one o'clock Sunday morning leaking. She struck a rock near Waugoschance, carrying away her forefoot and otherwise staving her up forward, so that they were obliged to jacket her to reach here. The tug LEVIATHAN's diver went to work patching her up. She is laden with oat and wheat. It is not thought that the cargo is damaged any yet.
