STEAMER CUMBERLAND SINKS AT OHIO STREET BRIDGE.
The wooden steamer Cumberland, ore laden, in coming through the river last night at 6:30 o'clock, bound to the Buffalo Furnace Company's dock, in tow of the tug HEBARD, struck the center abutment of the Ohio street bridge and settled to the bottom. She also shifted the bridge, blacking traffic all night. She laid right in the draw of the bridge. Before midnight she had six feet of water in her, but her pumps were started, and she rose sufficiently to go to the Minnesota ore dock at 6 o'clock this morning where her cargo will be unloaded: It is necessary to keep her pumps working all the time to keep her free of water.
