p.2 Marine News - Ashore - The Captain of the C.C. Butts reports seeing on Friday a large black fore-and-after ashore inside the point at Point aux Barques. He supposed her to be loaded with grain, but did not go very near her, as it was blowing fresh. [Detroit Tribune, 31st]

The schooner Lucy J. Latham, bound down loaded with corn, got hard aground yesterday at the head of Belle Isle. She was pulled off by the Oswego, and passed down all right. [ib]

Probable Loss of the Bark Canada - We mentioned in our last issue the fact that the Canada had sprung a leak and was lying water-logged a short distance below this city. On Sunday the tug McQueen made an attempt to relieve her but was unsuccessful. She drifted yesterday morning onto a sand bar opposite the water works, where she became fast, and it is reported that she is broken in two amidships. If this be the case the old Canada will have made her last voyage. Her cargo is still safe, the deck load being snugly stowed, and therefore not affected by the waves that continually break over it. The vessel is owned by E.A. Bruce, of this city. She measured 660 tons, and was built in 1844. [Chicago Press]
