The prop. JAVA, of the Commercial Line, struck off Grosse Point yesterday afternoon while coming down the river and started leaking. Although not very seriously damaged she was compelled to stop at Chesebrough's wharf, where she lightered some dundred barrels of flour and a number of tierces of lard, after which, by aid of pumps, control was gained over the leak and it was decided not to go into drydock here. She will proceed on to Buffalo in the morning where, after discharging her cargo, she will be docked. The java's cargo consists of corn and is not damaged by the accident.
