      AGROUND. - The bark RED, WHITE & BLUE, while entering the Detroit River Friday morning in a tow with six others, ran had aground on Bois Blanc Island. She is coal laden, and will doubtless have to lighter, before getting off. The tug WINSLOW has gone to her assistance.

      NOT OFF YET. - The bark RED, WHITE & BLUE, which got aground on Friday at the mouth of the Detroit River, has not been released up to Saturday afternoon. The cargo is being lightered, and with the assistance of the tug WILCOX the getting of the bark afloat in a day or two is reduced to a certainty.
