      AGROUND. - Capt. Moore, of the RUBY reports the schooner W. H. STEVENS, bound down, hard aground on the head of Fighting Island. After being on several hours the wind shifted from the east to the west, causing a fall of 8 to 10 inches, leaving her high and dry, and it will no doubt be somewhat difficuly to get her off. - - Detroit Tribune.

      GOT OFF. - The tug EMERALD succeeded in getting the schooner W. H. STEVENS, which got aground at the head of Fighting Island, afloat at 4 P.M. yesterday, and she continued on her voyage to Buffalo without having sustained any damage of consequence.
It was necessary to lighten her of 2,000 bushels wheat, and she was quite lucky in getting off so easily. She is from Milwaukee. - Detroit Tribune.
