Full Text

A SCHOONER AGROUND. - Word was brought to the city on Saturday that an ordinary size fore and aft schooner, lumber laden, was hard on the middle ground, above St. Clair. Inquiry was made concerning her from the propeller ARCTIC, steam barge SWALLOW and GLASGOW, which passed down that evening, but while all had seen her, they could not give her name. The captain of the SWALLOW thought it was the SEAMAN, but was not certain.
