SPRUNG A LEAK. - The Detroit Union of Wednesday has the following:-
The schooner M.B. SPAULDING, grain loaded, struck a rock while passing
down the Niagara River, causing her to spring a leak, and damaging a part of her
cargo. She will have to be placed in drydock before leaving port again. She is
owned in Buffalo by Griffin & McDonald. The scow FOX, bound for Toledo also
sprung a leak a day or two since, and was obliged to throw overboard a portion
of her deck load of lumber before getting into port.
