The tug PERRY has gone to the assistance of the schooner CAPE HORN, ashore at Point Peninsula. The schooner COLERAINE, which went ashore on the rocks near Brockville, has been got off. We learn by letter to J.M. Croilius, that the schooner CATHERINE, Capt. George Wilson, which left this port on Friday for Hamilton, with about 60 tons of coal, is ashore, but where, the letter does not state.
