The steamer V. SWAIN reports the barge BRUNETTE, grain laden, ashore near Malden Thursday afternoon, her bows being well out on a bottom composed of boulders. Nothing was being done at the time to release her, and her consort, the steamer W. L. WETMORE, was above coaling.

      At last report the barge BRUNETTE was still aground, though her consort and the Canadian tug JESSIE were working at her. The water near Bois Blanc island is low, and till it rises a foot it is thought that she cannot get off. She is headed to the westward and is well out forward, is is said about 18 inches.
