The prop. M.B. SPAULDING, of the American Transportation Co., sprung a leak on her last trip down from this city and, save for the timely assistance of two other propellers which happened to be near, she would probably have been lost. She was towed by the propellers to Buffalo

      The propeller M. B. Spaulding, which cleared from this port Tuesday with a full cargo of flour, wheat and general produce, became disabled in some manner off Long Point. She drifted about some two or three days and the Relief went out from Buffalo to bring her in but she wasn't able to find her. We found her today. She had been found by the propellers and towed into Buffalo. (from Detroit Tribune of Nov. 7th).
