Full Text

The steamers LONDON and SARATOGA, on entering Cleveland harbor on Tuesday
evening, were both driven against the pier, and were considerably injured. The LONDON, we understand, will be towed down today.

      . . . . .

The SARATOGA from Buffalo and the LONDON from Detroit, got in safely; the former about seven, the latter late at night. The SARATOGA was severely struck and somewhat injured, in her upper works as she entered the harbor. The consternation on board was very great for a little while. The AMERICA reached Buffalo safely this morning.
The SARATOGA in making this port last evening struck the stone pier, and stove in her larboard quarter, broke off one of her beams and started the upper cabin. Damages estimated at $300.
