Toronto, Sept. 18. -- The steamer CORINTHIAN ran ashore on a rock a little east of Grafton, this morning. The boat has seventy passengers on board, and a fair cargo. The freight and passengers were all saved, and forwarded by train. The steamer is supposed to be not much damaged. LATER -- The CORINTHIAN is of the Richelieu & Ontario Navigation Company's line, from Montreal, bound to Toronto and Hamilton. She is in a bad position and it is feared she will be a total wreck.
