      The prop. LAKE ERIE went ashore Friday morning off the American shore, about 8 miles from Malden. The prop. ASIA tried to get to her to pull her off, but owing to the hazy weather did not dare to go in far enough, and a report received at Detroit late Friday night says the LAKE ERIE was still on at dark, with stema barge LINCOLN trying to pull her off.

      The prop. LAKE ERIE, of the Canadian line, which got ashore at the lower end of Bois Blanc, Detroit River, was released Friday night and has passed up. The statement which has gone the rounds of the papers that the bark MONTMORENCI got ashore at Long Point is incorrect, so far as the name of the vessel is concerned. The vessel was the MONTICELLO, which grounded, but got off without damage and without assistance.
