Full Text

The prop. CHICAGO, from Chicago arrived here yesterday shortly after 11:00 in a disabled condition, by having struck the sunken wreck of the tug ZOUAVE, which lies at the outlet of Lake St. Clair, where she exploded a few days since. On the CHICAGO' s arrival at the dock the steam fire engines were immediately brought into requisition by sounding the fire alarm, and in a short time all fears of her sinking were overcome. She has on board a cargo of corn, a considerable quantity of which will be more or less damaged. She will be lightened of her cargo, when she will be placed in drydock and undergo all necessary repairs.
