The captain of the schr. GRANT which arrived at Kingston yesterday from Oswego reports that during the storm Tuesday he saw the schr. STAR ashore at the Main Duck, and the sea breaking over her. She had a cargo of railroad iron from Oswego for Belleville. Fears are entertained for the safety of the crew. The GRANT was unable to render assistance. A tug has been despatched from Kingston to rescue the stranded vessel.
