- Full Text
The steamer CRESCENT CITY, unbound collided with the barge KINGFISHER, in tow of the steamer H. B. TUTTLE, downbound with lumber, yesterday afternoon just above the entrance to the St. Clair Cut, and the KINGFISHER had her starboard side crushed for about thirty-five feet from her stern just above the waterline. She is now at Detroit leaking badly. Captain Bailey of the KINGFISHER says the CRESCENT CITY sheered into his vessel and the load of lumber only save her from being cut in two. The KINGFISHER had about 680,000 feet of Hemlock from Munishing to Cleveland.
