Grand Marais, Nov. 21. - The steamer PORTAGE, bound for Duluth with a cargo of salt, is stranded on a rock three-fourths of a mile from shore at Point au Sable. The steamer is out one foot forward and two feet aft, but is reported to be not leaking. Tugs have been sent for and the life-saving crew have gone from here to be of assistance in case a storm should spring up, as the vessel is in an exposed position to a north wind. The PORTAGE registers 1608 tons and was formerly in the Union Transit Line between Buffalo and Duluth.
