She is ashore on Pt. au Pelee near the light. The CORSICAN is from Black River for Milwaukee. She struck near the EVERLEIGH, but a little further from the light. The LAFRANEER is from Detroit for Buffalo with wheat, which is insured at 10 cent rate. She is also on Pt. au Pelee. The schr. VOLUNTEER sunk on Friday night, at the pier at Marblehead. The small stm. R.J. GORDON ran aground on Friday night, opposite Trenton, on Grosse Isle.
      The ERIE BELLE is engaged to go after the CORSICAN, which is full of water, and was expected to leave last night with steam pumps and hawser. The SWEEPSTAKES goes on Sunday morning to pull off the GORDON.
