Cheboygam, April 26. -- The tug FAVORITE with MABEL WILSON in tow, put in for shelter here this morning. She is in good condition, and her steam pumps keep her free. The consort of the steamer PILLSBURY ran on the Light-House Reef this morning but was released by the tug MERRICK.

      Cheboygan, April 27. -- Steamer MISSOULA and her whaleback barge 103 had a big time of it this morning. The steamer ran on lighthouse Point and stopped. The barge crashed into her carrying away the rudder of the steamer and smashing her own bows. The crash sent the MISSOULA off the Point, and the barge forced up there. She was released by the tug MERRICK and will make repairs here.
