A dispatch to the Detroit Post and Tribune says: During the very smoky weather of the last evening, the steam barge W. H. BARNUM, bound for Buffalo with corn, went ashore on Point Abino. The tug ROOTH went to her assistance from here this morning and succeeded in pulling her off after throwing about 400 bushels overboard. The BARNUM sustained no damage.
