Detroit, Oct. 16. -- A Sault Ste. Marie special last night says: -- On Thursday at 1 o'clock P. M., the steambarge TUTTLE and consort J.H. EBY struck the reef running out from Lighthouse Point at the Detour entrance to the sault River, the steamer struck heavily, jumping over the reef; but the EBY sank broadside in the sea. In thirty minutes a heavy sea was running from the Sault east causing the EBY to pound heavily for twenty-four hours, and washed away part of her cabin and all of her bulwarks on the lee side, the crew clinging to the upper works till three the next morning. The TUTTLE arrived today in charge of the tug PECK, leaking so that her pumps can hardly free her, and she is being dry-docked in the canal with a diver to stop the leak, all the water being out of the lock. The steam tug and pumps will go to the EBY's assistance. The EBY has a cargo of coal consigned to Portage from Ashtabula, and sunk in fifteen feet of water.
