      CRIPPLED STEAMERS ARRIVE HERE.
      The big freighter J. T. HUTCHINSON arrived in this port and was taken to the Eastern Elevator yesterday forenoon. 4,500 bushels of wet wheat were taken out of her hold. As soon as she is unloaded she will be taken to Cleveland, placed in dry dock for examination and repairs. She went on the bottom at the Limekilns.
The steamer SAXONA, which was in collision with the ZIMMERMAN above the Soo, is now in the Buffalo Drydock and proves to be badly injured. Her plates are knocked away from the forecastle deck to the forefoot and her stem is badly twisted. Several plates will have to come off her bottom also. It is estimated that it will cost upward of $30,000 to repair her.

      STEAMER HUTCHINSON IN DRY DOCK AT CLEVELAND.
The steamer HUTCHINSON has arrived at Cleveland and is now in drydock. Examination shows that 39 bottom plates are damaged as a result of the vessel striking the Dyke in the Soo River. Her frames are also buckled and considerable of the interior construction is badly damaged. This damage is the cause of her wetting some 2,800 bushels of her wheat cargo. It will take two weeks to get the HUTCHINSON out and the repairs will cost about $15,000.
