RUN INTO. - The ferry steamer ESSEX was considerably damaged yesterday noon while lying at the Windsor dock, by being run into by the new propeller METEOR, which, while casually passing down the river, took a sudden sheer into the ESSEX, cutting her larboard side and damaging her cabin and upper works to a considerable extent. Fortunately no one was injured on board, although many made their escape on to the dock badly frightened. - Detroit Free Press.
