ASHORE. -- The steam barge ROBERTSON, which passed up Saturday, came to anchor a short distance from Belle River, Lake St. Clair, for the purpose of delivering some freight consigned to that port. While lying there the wind came up furiously and she dragged her anchors and went ashore. The Tug Association dispatched the powerful tug QUAYLE to her assistance. Up to last evening nothing had been learned regarding the position. It is thought probable that she is off and safe by this time. --- Detroit Post.
