AGROUND AND OFF - The mate of the steamer EVENING STAR reported yesterday afternoon, that when his steamer was passing the head of Herson's Island, at about noon, the schooner F.L. DANFORTH was hard aground there, and the tugs FRANK MOFFATT and CONSTITUTION, and the Revenue steamer FESSENDEN were doing their best to release her.
      She passed Detroit at 7:30 last evening in tow of the tug CONSTITUTION, showing that their efforts had been successful.
