Full Text

      The schr. SUPERIOR, from Marquette, with ore for Detroit, on the 3d while approaching the bend of the Sault River, guided by buoys off Round Island, struck on a reef or middle ground. The cargo was jettisoned sufficient to lighten her off, and she reached Detroit in a leaky condition. It is supposed the buoys have become displaced.
