      TWO WEEKS TO REPAIR THE CADILLAC.
      Cleveland, May 18. -- The steamer CADILLAC, which was on Starve Island Reef, was placed in dry-dock today. It will take at least two weeks to make repairs. Forty bottom plates are damaged, and most of them cannot be used again. Her forefoot is gone and she will have to have a new stem.
