Sault Ste. Marie, Aug. 30. - A heavy northwest wind sprang up this afternoon, clearing away the smoke and fog. Seventy-nine of the largest lake craft are here at present, weather bound. The steam-barge CORMORANT with her consort RICHARD WINSLOW, ran aground near Round Island, Waiska Bay, during the fog. The WINSLOW was released by the steamer S.G. HODGE. A lighter and tug have gone to the CORMORANT. The steambarge R.J. HACKETT and consort, during the thick fog, ran aground inside of Churchill Point, twelve miles below this place As both vessels are light and the bottom clay it will probably be some time before thay can be released. Assistance has been sent them.
