THE MATOA IN A BAD WAY.
      Cleveland, Nov. 25. -- Telegrams from Ashland state that the Minnesota steel steamer MATOA has now eight feet of water in her hold, in addition to the water bottom being filled. Seventy-five men are now engaged in throwing the ore cargo overboard, and pumps are reducing the water about one foot per hour. Two other of the Minnesota Company boats now at Ashtabula will try to rescue the stranded steamer this afternoon.

      Cleveland, Nov. 28. -- The steamer MATOA came here from Ashtabula acconpanied by two other steamers of the Minnesota fleet. She is unloading the remainder of her ore cargo and the extent of the damage cannot yet be ascertained, but will doubtless be very heavy as the steamer is water logged. The deck seem to be raised six inches at one spot.
