Owing to the position of the barge OLGA, which was rammed in St. Clair River recently by the steamer SAUNDERS and CLARION, it will be several days before she will be unloaded, on which work men are now engaged, and after which the OLGA will be taken to Buffalo.

North Tonawanda, June 13 - The Schr. OLGA which was crushed between two large freighters on the St. Clair River a fortnight ago, was towed up the river from Gratwick this afternoon and put in Meyer's slip. The owners of the vessels which damaged the OLGA have, it is said, agreed to rebuild the vessel and pay for lost time. James Brown and W. Alarie have entered bids for the rebuilding work. The work will be let next week.
