Full Text

The steamer QUEEN CITY, in attempting to make the harbor of Ashtabula on Monday evening, ran on to the pier and stove in her bows, and broke some of her machinery. About 40 of her passengers jumped off on the pier and were left, the boat floating into the lake. In the course of yesterday she was so far repaired as to be able to reach this port this morning.
