The propeller CITY OF CONCORD, of the Northern Transportation Co.'s Line attempted to run into Cleveland on Saturday night, and ran hard aground, by getting out of the regular channel. The United States Revenue cutter PERRY went to her assistance, but was unable to accomplish anything that evening. She worked at her on Sunday assisted by the tugs TILLINGHUST and DORR, but could not release her, and in the afternoon gave up the attempt.
