      PROPELLER INDIANA ASHORE. - The propeller INDIANA, Capt. Perew, bound from Cleveland to this port, with a cargo of flour, went ashore this morning about daylight, in the fog, near Point Abino. She went on with a full head of steam, and sticks fast. She is insured in the North-Western Insurance Co., the agent of which, in this city, Mr. Lovering, has sent the tug VAIL and a lighter to her assistance. The prospects of getting her off are favorable.
