Duluth, Sept. 12. -- The steamer NORTH WIND, which struck the pier and sunk just inside the harbor during the fierce gale a week ago, will be out of dry dock and ready for service again today. It was found there was no great damage aside from the hole in her side.
      The damage to the cargo of the steamer was, as near as can be ascertained at present, about $50,000. The value of the cargo was about $100,000. The work of adjusting the loss is in the hands of H. R. Robinson of Buffalo.
