      STEAMER SUPERIOR. - The Sandusky Register of the 19th. inst., says this steamer went ashore on the west side of Put-in-Bay Island, on Saturday night, owing to the prevalence of a dense fog. The clerk reported her as being firmly wedged in between two large rocks, and four feet out of water forward. She was not essentially damaged in striking; but owing to the fact that she went on in high water, apprehensions are felt that she may suffer serious damage before she can be got off. The steamer HURON took her passengers into Sandusky. The U.S. iron steamer MICHIGAN left Erie on Monday last to help her off.
