SCOW SUNK BY A TUG. - The scow MAYFLOWER, loaded with wood, while lying just above the Cuyahoga Steam Furnace, was run into last evening, about 7 o'clock, by a mud scow in tow of the steam tug T.G. NOTTER. The collision was so violent as to sink the scow MAYFLOWER immediately. There were five persons aboard, and one, a female, had just time to escape with her life, only four minutes elapsing after the collision before the scow went down. - Cleveland Plaindealer, 22.
