A MISHAP TO THE PROPELLER MAINE.
      Detroit, Sept. 3. - A dispatch received from Sault St. Marie, reports that the propeller MAINE struck a reef two miles above there last night. A steam pump and lighter were sent to her relief. The damage is not yet ascertained.

      THE ACCIDENT TO THE MAINE.
Mr. A. W. French, secretary of the Northern Transit Company, was approached on Tuesday morning, regarding the accident of the propeller MAINE, mentioned in telegraphic reports Monday evening. He said that the damage done to the vessel is not serious, and that she will be ready to move in a few days. As indicated by the report she ran aground about two miles above the Sault St. Marie, striking, evidently, on a boulder. The Captain telegraphed that she was lying safe aground, and that he wanted a "marine diver" sent up to repair a hole in the vessel's bottom. The diver and necessary machinery were sent up at once on another vessel which will arrive there Thursday. The passengers, Mr. French said, would have the privilege of coming down on another boat or remaining until the MAINE is repaired.
