THE BARK CREAM CITY HADE AGROUND AGAIN. -- The steam bark CREAM CITY, which we have already reported as being aground on one or two occasions and off again, passed here last evening, bound for Milwaukee, has, we learn, grounded on the Flats, and when last heard from was hard on. Her disasters on this, her first trip, will doubtless be attended with an expense which will far exceed the gross earnings of the trip. She has been truly the most singularly unfortunate on this, her maiden trip. --- Detroit Free Press
