Cleveland, October 31. -- The MARUBA and KETCHUM will both have to go into dry-dock when unloaded. Seven tugs were at work on the MARUBA a long time yesterday, About 150 tons of ore was taken out by last evening. The starboard compartment forward is full of water. The KETCHUM, which was struck by the MARUBA when the latter was trying to make the piers, will require repairs that may delay her several days. The SAMANA has been driven inside the pilers on the beach and will probably not be worth releasing.

A Cleveland dispatch says a pretty little spaniel, which had been forgotton by the crew of the SAMANA when they made their rush for the shore last Saturday morning, was taken off the wreck yesterday by the mate. The dog had been for two days without anything to eat, and was whining piteously and shivering from the cold.
