Full Text

      The stmb. OAKLAND, of Buffalo, in attempting to enter Ashtabula harbor last Wednesday night during the gale from the northwest ran into the west pier about 200 ft. from the lighthouse, making a breach of 20 or 25 ft., cutting the pier down to about 1 ft. below the water mark and leaving part of her stem in the breach. She is now lying with her bows on the bank of the river. She will probably be repaired at once sufficiently to take her to drydock.
