      PROPELLER GALENA AGROUND - The propeller GALENA (Peoples line,) bound
for ports on Lake Michigan with a large load of goods, ran aground yesterday morning
about three o'clock, just below Sandwich Point, about three miles below the city on the
Canada side. The steamer WINDSOR was sent down to lighten her, and was engaged
all day in taking off her goods and bringing them to the dock of the agent. It is probable
that she is off before this time. - Detroit Advertiser.
