Frankfort. ----- The steambarge ALBERT SMITH, with a tow consisting of the J.W. HANNAFORD, ROBERT L. FRYER, SELDEN E. MARVIN, left last Wednesday laden with nearly three million feet of pine lumber for Tonawanda, rate being 30 cents per m. over Bay City freight. Owing to the gale that had prevailed, the water was fully 18 inches lower than usual, causing a delay of seven hours by the SMITH grounding on the bar, but tug HALL assisted by propeller LAWARENCE released her. The consorts also dragged some, but with aid of propeller DEWAR were also released.
