      SCHOONER PRESIDENT ASHORE. - Capt. Edwards, of the schooner JOHN GRANT, informs us that the schooner PRESIDENT, with a cargo of lumber, went ashore at Pierre Marquette, during a violent snow storm on Sunday night, the 17th inst. The GRANT was also near going ashore, but saved herself after breaking one of her chain cables and slipping the other, leaving both of her anchors behind. When she left, a heavy sea was beating over the PRESIDENT, but as the bottom was sandy, it was not thought she was in
danger of going to pieces.
