THE FOREST QUEEN AGROUND. - Night before last, as the steamer FOREST
QUEEN was coming down the river, when about six miles this side of Port Huron, she
ran upon the Canada shore in a thick fog. Word was sent to the FORESTER, which
was lying at Port Huron, and she came down yesterday morning, and, after taking off
the freight of the FOREST QUEEN, succeeded in pulling her off. No material
damage was sustained. - Detroit Free Press.
