      . . . . .

      VESSEL ASHORE. - We learn from Mr. Webb, clerk of the ISLANDER, that a scow loaded with shingle bolts, bound for this port, went ashore on Kelley's Island during the recent storm, and went to pieces. Vessel and cargo probably a total loss.
      He also reports the three masted schooner "GLOBE," loaded with staves, floating in the neighborhood of the Island in a disabled condition. She sprung a leak during the gale and filled with water, but the boyancy of her load kept her from sinking below her deck. Her decl load was entirely swept away. - Sandusky Mirror, 26th.
