BURNHAM AND CUTLER COLLIDE AT CLEVELAND.
Cleveland, Aug. 13. - The steamer GEORGE H. BURNHAM and barge D. G. CUTLER were in collision early Saturday at the entrance to this port. The BURNHAM was outbound, light and as she reached the gap, passed between the tug CASCADE and an incoming steamer between the west jetty and the ship. She met the tug SAUNDERS and barge CUTLER inbound.
Passing signals were exchanged. The barge ran into the BURNHAM, cutting a hole about forty feet long and eight feet high in the side of the steamer, above the water line. The damage to the CUTLER consisted of a smashed bow. The BURNHAM put back into the river and the CUTLER proceeded up the river to the furnace.
