A noon dispatch from Detroit says that the prop. J.L. HURD ran aground in the Neebish Rapids, in the St. Mary's River, while attempting to pass the stmb. NAHANT, which was also aground. The condition of the HURD is bad. She is leaking fast and her pumps are unable to keep her free. It is feared that her cargo of grain will be badly damaged. Tugs and lighters have gone to her aid. The NAHANT has got off.
