      RAN ASHORE. - The schooner FRED HILL, owned in part, and commanded by Capt. J.D. McGaw, cleared from Buffalo a few days since, to take on a cargo at what is known as No. 16, on the north shore of Lake Erie, and shortly after her arrival in that locality, was visited by the recent severe storm. While endeavoring to work clear from the land, she was driven ashore near Rondeau, and now lies high and dry on the beach. She lies in a good position for getting off the first favorable opportunity, and thus far has sustained no serious damage. The tug WINSLOW was yesterday promptly dispatched to her relief, and being possessed of excellent wrecking qualities, will doubtless soon have her afloat again.

      THE FRED HILL. - The tug WINSLOW, which left here a day or two since to go to the relief of the FRED HILL, at Rondeau, returned to port yesterday afternoon for the necessary apparatus with which to float her. The HILL lies well out on the beach, and has some two feet of water in her hold, and as has already been stated, has no cargo aboard. With two or three days favorable weather she may be got afloat; in the mean time she lies where she can sustain no serious damage. - Detroit Free Press
