The Express says. - We learn from Capt. Alexander of the propeller BUCEPHALUS, which arrived here last evening, that the schooner SUFFOLK, bound for Chicago, with a cargo of railroad iron, went ashore last Sunday night in a fog about 20 miles this side of Mackinaw. She will probably be got off by lightening. She had already thrown overboard a portion of her iron.
