MALIEOTA STRANDS ON ROUND ISLAND.
Sault Ste. Marie, April 21. - The long line of accidents in the Soo Passage since the opening of navigation was further added to yesterday by the stranding of the steamer MALIEOTA on Round Island. So firmly is the big boat on that the steamers BESSEMER and MARINA failed to effect her release, and she will have to be lightered. As the lighter is now being used on the stranded steamers MURPHY and DONNECONA, the MALIETOA will have to stay where she is and wait her return before being released.

      LIGHTERED GRAIN AND WAS RELEASED.
Sault Ste. Marie, April 23. --The Canadian steamer DONNECONA, which stranded near here, was released yesterday after 5,000 bushels of her grain cargo had been lightered. She was uninjured and continued on her voyage. The steamer CLYDE, laden with iron ore, is stranded at Round Island. Tugs have gone to her assistance. Nothing has yet been done toward raising the steamer ZIMMERMAN, sunk by collision with the SAXONA some days ago, but it is expected that a contract for the work will be let by the underwriters today.
