Capt. S. B. Grummond has been troubled for some time back by steamers running into his wharf, so the last time he repaired it he had a railroad rail spiked on the timber which the steamers usually favored most. On Saturday the steam barge Oscoda came in, and, not knowing that the wharf had been iron off, gave it a punch. The result was that the wharf escaped uninjured, while the stem of the Oscoda was cut in just the depth of the iron rail.
