PROPELLER ASHORE. -- We learn from Capt. Hopkins, of the propeller FOSS, that the propeller LOUISIANA, which runs from Collingwood to Green Bay, went ashore in a fog on the south-east point of St. Martim's Island, Green Bay, on Thursday morning, July 26th. Her bow is five feet and her stern nine feet under water. She had some twenty-five passengers on board, which were taken to Navarino, their destination, by the steamer CLEVELAND. It is feard that the LOUISINANA will not be got off the rocks on which she lies.
