STEAMER "MICHIGAN" AGROUND.---As the steamer MICHIGAN was coming across the St. Clair Flats, on her down trip from Green Bay, she got out of the channel and
ran hard aground. The tug boats CLIFTON and H. MORTON went to her assistance, but were unable to get her off. The CLIFTON brought down yesterday about 700 bbls. fish from her cargo, and the MORTON was to bring down the balance. After being lightened of her entire cargo, she will probably be got off without serious damage.------Detroit Free press
