WENONA AGROUND. -- Saturday morning as the propeller WENONA was bound up the river for this port she ran hard aground on Grassy Island. The tugs PRINGLE and QUAYLE were sent to her assistance, but up to 6 o'clock last evening had not succeeded in getting her afloat. The officers of the WENONA claim that the propeller St. PAUL, which was coming up the river at the time crowded them on to the island, striking the WENONA astern. --- Free Press, 28th.

The WENONA put off a portion of her cargo, and received no damage. She will be ready to leave tomorrow night on her usual time for Alpena. --- Detroit Post 1st.
