PROPELLER ORIENTAL. - This vessel while on her way down, in coming into St. Clair River, got ashor in the Rapids, about half-way between Port Huron and the Lighthouse, Wednesday evening. She went bow on and swung around stern down stream with her bow out about three or four feet. It is supposed that in coming down Lake Huron the rudder got out of place, which was the cause of her going ashore.
      The RUBY lighted her of about 1,000 barrels, and when she left yesterday, the tug LION was lighting her of some of the remaining freight. P.S. - The ORIENTAL arrived about 6 o'clock last evening all right. She will fill up with freight today, and leave tomorrow for Buffalo. - Detroit Advertiser.
