- Full Text
Ashtabula, Oct. 23. -- The steam barge OAKLAND, of Buffalo, in attempting to make this port last night about 2:30 A. M. during the gale from the northwest, ran into the west pier about 200 feet from the lighthouse, making a breach of twenty or thenty-five feet, cutting the pier down to about one foot below the water mark and leaving part of her stem in the breach. She is now lying just below the lime kiln her bows on the bank of the river. She will probably be repaired at once sufficiently to take her to dry dock.
