      [Special telegram to the Inter Ocean]
      Collingwood, Ont., Oct. 11. -- The schooner GRANGER, loaded with grain from Chicago, ran aground during last night one mile west of the Dummy light-house. The Captain not being acquainted with the entrance to the harbor mistook the light and grounded the schooner. The tugs McPHERSON, CHEROKEE, and the dredge tug were all pulling at her, but up to 8 o'clock tonight were unsuccessful in taking her off.
