The stm. COMET of the Buffalo and Green Bay line, which passed down Saturday morning, reports the prop. DEAN RICHMOND hard aground in the river St. Clair near Marine City, being upward bound. Two or 3 tugs were at work assisting to get her afloat. The COMET also reports the stmb. R.J. HACKETT, upward bound, hard aground near Recors dockwith tugs at hand endeavoring to get her off. Up to a late hour Saturday neither had been released, although the work of lightering was being done and occasional pull by the tugs at the hawser was made. The RICHMOND was well out. The HACKETT, however, was probably floated before sundown. - Det. Free Press, 29th.
