Full Text

The stm. CLEVELAND left the dock yesterday morning for Detroit, and while passing out of the Creek struck an anchor near the east pier, which knocked a hole in her bottom, 6 inches in
circumference. The accident was not observed at first, but when about 5 miles out, she was found to be leaking and was put about.
On arriving here the ground tier of goods were found to be slightly damaged, but by the aid of her pumps she was relived of the water, and goes on the railway for repairs.
