The bark GOLDEN FLEECE arrived at Detroit Saturday afternoon. She floated after about 200 tons of ore, which was afterwards lost, had been jettisoned. The partial service of one steam pump kept her clear during the passage. Her damages are not severe. She has been towed to Erie to unload and repair.
