BLEW OUT HER CYLINDER HEAD

      And Will Be Towed In.
The steamer St. LOUIS, coal laden from Buffalo and towing the schooners POTOMAC, CHAMPION and CHARLES WALL, blew out her cylinder head yesterday afternoon about 35 miles up the lake. The steamer SYRACUSE of the Western Transportation was hailed shortly after the accident and was asked to send assistance from Buffalo.
      The steamer NORTH WIND was also hailed and a small boat went out to her with the mate and several of the St. LOUIS' crew, who were taken on board and brought to Buffalo. The tugs FABIAN and CASCADE were ordered to bring the disabled St. LOUIS and her tow back to port.
