STRUCK A SUNKEN CRIB.
      The steamer WETMORE, coal laden, and towing the schooner BRUNETTE, while going around the southerly end of the Government breakwater yesterday afternoon struck one of the sunken cribs. She could not release herself. It took the combined efforts of the tugs MAYTHAM, GEE and HEBARD for more than an hour to release her. She did not suffer any damage and proceeded on her way to Milwaukee. Vesselmen and Lake Captains are complaining bitterly about the state of affairs at that point.
