Mackinaw City, May 30. - In a dense fog, the steel steamer SEGUIN, bound down light, ran ashore half a mile west of McGulpin's Point at 7 o'clock this morning. She struck a rocky bottom and ran out a foot forward. The wrecking tug FAVORITE has been ordered here from Cheboygan. The SEGUIN is a Canadian craft and is worth about $80,000.

Mackinaw City, May 30 - The stm. SEQUIN, which stranded at McGulpin's Pt. in the fog this morning, was released by the FAVORITE at 4:00 this afternoon.
While the steamer is not leaking, she is no doubt considerably damaged as she was on a rocky bottom and ran out 16 inches aft. The FAVORITE has taken the SEGUIN to St. Ignace where a diver will make an examination.
