COLORADO ASHORE. -- The officers of the propeller CHINA, which arrived at Chicago on Monday evening, report that the propeller COLORADO, of the Union Line, ran ashore on Round Island, in the Straits of Mackinaw, Sunday morning, during a dense fog. The COLORADO was bound for Buffalo and had a cargo of 48,672 bushels of corn and 300 barrels of flour. The bottom where she struck was rocky, but as there was no sea running it is thought that she sustained no injuries. --- Detroit Free Press.
