Full Text

Detroit.---Early Sunday morning the steamer SUSQUEHANNA, drawing 15 and a half feet, ran hard aground at Grosse Pointe near the lightship. During the whole of the day the crew were engaged in shifting her cargo, hoisting barrels out of the forward hatch and rolling them aft in the hope of floating her. Their efforts were unsuccessful, however, and a tug and lighter were sent up Monday morning to release her.
