SMASHED THE DOCK.
      North Tonawanda, Nov. 13. - The steamer PESHTIGO, lumber laden, crashed into the dock of Skillings, Whitney & Barnes, while trying to make her slip yesterday afternoon. A large section of the dock was completely wrecked, but the steamer was only slightly damaged. The high winds sweeping down the river, and the consequent rough water in the harbor, are said to have caused the accident.
