BARK BEACHED. - As the bark CITY OF BUFFALO was entering the St. Clair River, bound down, on Friday evening, she unfortunately missed the channel and went upon the beach on the Canada side. The weather at the time was fortunately in her favor, and she succeeded in getting off shortly afterwards by timely assistance from the tugs WINSLOW and PECK, which at the time were near at hand, and but for their presence she would doubtless have fared worse than she did. - Detroit Free Press.
