Description
Full Text

DRIFTED FOR TWO HOURS.
      When off Ashtabula yesterday the steamer STATE OF OHIO broke a connecting rod and before steam could be shut off, her machinery was badly wrecked. There was a large number of excursionists on board, but no particular excitement prevailed. After drifting for two hours the steamer was towed to Ashtabula by the tug RED CLOUD and the passengers went on to Cleveland by rail. It will cost $10,000 to repair the OHIO's damages, and, until she is out again the STATE OF NEW YORK will take her place on the C. & B. route.
