Detroit, July 27. -- The Minnesota freighter MARUBA, coming up loaded last night, was struck amidships by the steam barge JAMES WATT, and badly damaged. The MARUBA had a consort, and in some way got the tow line in her wheel while off Fighting Island. While unmanageable, she swung across the channel and the WATT struck her, stoving a great hole in her side. The bow of the WATT was badly damaged also. The accident occurred eight miles below Detroit.
