Full Text

On Sunday evening about half pase eight o'clock, the barge WILLIAM McGREGOR in tow of the steamer FOREST CITY, bound for Sandusky, struck the DOVE at Girdlestone's wharf, just aft the port bow. The McGREGOR's anchor made two holes in the DOVE's hull, one just above the water, and raised the upper deck. The railing was broken along the whole port side of the DOVE. The damage will be about $150.
