Articles From The Schooner "Volunteer." - The schooner Volunteer, which went ashore near Port Ontario several days ago, was got off yesterday and towed by the tug Crusader to Goble & Macfarlane's dry dock, where she will be repaired. The following enumerated articles were found buried in the sand on the beach, and are supposed to have washed ashore from the schooner:

Two large silver plated rings, one marked "I.M.L," the other "L.L."; one Enfield rifle; two carpet-sacks made of carpeting, one of which contained two white shirts. Collars, brushes and other small articles were found in them, also a memorandum book, in which there was nothing legible. The articles are now in the possession of H. C. Manwaring, on the tug Crusader, and any one claiming ownership of them should apply to him.

The Volunteer is in pretty bad condition, her bulk-heads being all washed out, and she is otherwise disabled. It was necessary to keep both her pumps going constantly in order to get her to this port.
