STEAMER MISSOURI ASHORE.---From the officers of the steamer MADISON we learn that the steamer MISSOURI is aground on a reef five miles below Cattaraugus.
She is said to be pretty hard on, and the steamer BUFFALO with a schooner in to has been dispatched to lighten her off. It is unnecessary to state that her getting aground is attributable to no negligence on the part of her officers, for she is as well officered as any craft that floats, but that it was owing altogether to a dense fog which prevailed at the time.
