Full Text

As the schr. FITZHUGH was being towed up the river at Toledo on Friday afternoon last she struck a projecting timber at the Pennsylvania bridge and had a hole stove in her bow about 1 1/2 ft. below the water line. On arriving at the Wabash elevator 5 inches of water were found in her hold, and as the drydock was occupied, she was run upon Goose Pt. so as to bring the break above water and enable repairs to be made.
