Bark SARANAC, cargo wheat, ashore on Hen and Chickens

      . . . . .

The schooner SARANAC, which passed down grain laden on Sunday, has gone ashore on the Hen and Chickens Island, Lake Erie. Her captain arrived in this city last evening in quest of a tug to go to her relief. She has sustained no serious damage up to the time of the captain's departure, and it is presumed, should prompt relief be sent, she will at once be got off. The tug CASTLE, we learn, left last evening for the scene of the disaster. - Detroit Free Press.

      The schooner SARANAC has been got off from the Hen and Chickens reef, where she was ashore, by the rise in the water of the lake, and before the tugs sent to her relief reached her.
