Amherstburg, Aug. 13. -- The Lime Kilns crossing caught another victim today. The barge ARMENIA, bund up in tow of the steamer FRED PABST, took a sheer in the crossing and went hard aground on the rocks on the east bank at 5 o'clock this morning.
      The tugs HOME RULE and SAGINAW were summoned and lightered 200 tons of her coal cargo, effecting her release about 6 o'clock last evening. There is apparently no injury sustained by the ARMENIA. One of her owners was on board and superintended the wrecking operations. About a month ago the vessel was aground in almost the same spot.
