The Detroit Post & Tribune: The steambarge D. M. WILSON, which was aground on the Sault River for four days, and which was forced to return here although she was bound to Lake Superior, has been placed in the dry-dock. On examination it was found that she required a new fore-foot, and that her iron shoe needed repairs. She will probably be detained till Tuesday next.
