      The prop. ONEIDA, reported aground at the mouth of the river is not off yet. Her captain has arrived in this city and reports the vessel as hard on, and the water having taken a recent fall renders her situation more difficult than before. The ONEIDA is downward bound, and not up, as previously stated, and is laden with 26,624 bu. barley, 1,000 bu. wheat and 1,200 bbls. flour. Her entire deck load will have to be removed ere she can be moved, and perhaps the grain also. Up to the latest advices she has sustained no damage and is not leaking. - Detroit Free Press
