AGROUND. -- On Thursday last while the bark M.R. GOFFE was coming down Pine River laden with brick she was grounded twice. After about twenty-four hours of uninterrupted labor on the part of her crew she was again floated but as she was passing through the Pine River bridge she struck a spile and efforts to release her were fruitless until Friday morning when the water rose and she floated to the mouth of the river where she grounded again. She was however, soon released and cleared for Lake Superior.
