The Obstructions in the Rivers. - In a letter received this week Capt. P. Dowdell of the steamer NESHOTO says: "On August 29, 2:30 a.m., when a little below or abreast of Amherstburg, about 250 feet below the shoal, with the red light on the port side, bound down, the steamer NESHOTO struck something which felt and sounded like a loose boulder. We were a trifle to the east of the red ranges. I headed my vessel a little to the west to keep her out of the way of two up-bound boats, and it was in this position she struck forward. just once. The NESHOTO was drawing 17 feet 5 inches forward and 17 feet 1 inch aft, and was bound from Duluth to Erie loaded with iron ore.
