Full Text

Manitowoc, October 30. -- The schooner MAY RICHARDS, which was recently on the rocks at Manistique, arrived here in tow of the RUBE RICHARDS today, and was docked for repairs. She will need nearly a new keel, 40 feet of garboard, planking and much recaulking. The total bill will be nearly $1,200.
      The steamer F. E. SPINNER, recently sunk by collision in the St. Marys river, arrived here under her own power this morning, the syphons keeping the water down in the hold. She is badly damaged, and will be docked on Friday for survey and repairs. The bow must be built in, and much other work done.
