      Cleveland, Dec. 19.
The propeller GRANITE STATE in attempting to make the river, on Saturday night, struck the pier and stove a hole in her side. She lost both anchors in vain attempt to hold her position. The storm drove her ashore some five or six
hundred yards west of the pier. Her bow is well upon the shore and her stern in ten feet water. She was from Buffalo, and had on board one hundred barrels of salt. Some hopes are entertained of getting her off without material damage.

      PROPELLER ASHORE. -- The propeller GENESEE CHIEF, owned by Chamberlain & Crawford, in attempting to make the river on Saturday night, struck the pier and stove a hole in her bows. She lost both anchors in a vain attempt to hold her position. The storm drove her ashore above the mouth of the River, some 500 or 600 yards. Her bow is well upon shore, and her stern in ten feet of water. She was from Buffalo, and had aboard 100 barrels of salt. Hopes are entertained of getting her off without material damage.

We are obliged to correct our correction in relation to the name of the propeller which went ashore. It was neither the PRAIRIE STATE nor the GENESEE CHIEF, but the GRANITE STATE. Third hand high, you know.

We learn from the Cleveland Plaindealer, that the steamer CLEVELAND went out on Wednesday last to haul the propeller GRANITE STATE off. Unfortunately one of the cables broke, and the attempt failed. Subsequently the GRANITE STATE was got off and towed into port by the tugs NIAGARA and CLIFF BELDEN. The GRANITE STATE was bound from this port to Cleveland with a load of salt.
