Description
Full Text

Aground.--The steamboat JULIA PALMER, ran aground, night before last, on a little island, called Mamma Judy, in the Detroit River, near Grosse Isle, about 15 miles from this city. The night was extremely dark. Yesterday, the steamboat United, was at work lightenig her of her cargo and endeavoring to get her off, but at the time of writing, had not yet succeeded. The JULIA PALMER was running in opposition to the Combination, and had a large number of passengers on board.

The steamboat JULIA PALMER, which we mentioned as having run aground the other night, was gotten off the next day. A change of the wind raised the water so as to aid her materially in getting easily off the bar, with her cargo.
