Buffalo, N. Y. Nov. 30. -- The steamer MARK HOPKINS is ashore six miles west of Long Point Light. Telegraphic orders for tugs were received from the captain today, and the tugs KELDERHOUSE and DUNBAR were dispatched to the assistance of the stranded boat. Captain John Perew, representing the underwriters, accompanied the expedition. The HOPKINS is without cargo, and left Buffalo Tuesday night. She went ashore Wednesday on a sandy bottom, and the tugs must dredge a channel to tow the stranded vessel into deep water.
