      RAN AGROUND. - The bark RED, WHITE and BLUE, with a cargo of coal, bound for Chicago, was run hard aground on Wednesday night near Grosse Isle, while in tow of the tug SOL. RUMAGE, and is out some 18 inches. She fetched up on a stoney bottom, and shortly afterwards commenced leaking. A portion of her cargo is being lightened, which was being attended to yesterday. She will doubtless need repairs before proceeding on her voyage. - Detroit Free Press.
