Milwaukee, Aug. 26. -- The steambarge WOCOKEN and consort DELAWARE, which ran on a reef at White Rock, were today docked for examination and repairs. The WOCOKEN's keel forward, aft, and amidships is considerably broomed, but will probably not have to be renewed; at least the work will not be done here. She requires a new wheel, a number of new planks in her bottom and bilges, and calking before leaving the dock. To put her in the same condition as she was before the accident will requite an expenditure of at least $2,000. The DELAWARE requires a new forefoot and twenty feet of keel forward , some new keel amidships, and several bottom planks
