ASHORE.---The schooner PALMETTO, of this port, bound for Green Bay, for a cargo
of lumber, went ashore at 2 o'clock last Monday morning at White Fish Bay, about thirty
miles this side of "Death's Door." At last account, she had in but little water, and it was
thought would be got off without much damage. The gale was very severe at the foot of
the lake, and it is not improbable that we may hear of more disasters. - Chicago Tribune
