VESSEL ASHORE.---The schooner LELAND, Capt. Hutchison, went ashore at "Death's Door" at the entrance to Green Bay, two or three days since. Crew saved. The vessel will be got off, the captain left here yesterday with a steam tug and pump for the purpose of assisting her. ------ Chicago Tribune

      . . . . .

      The schooner LELAND, it is feared, will not be got off, although the steam tug is working at her. Her lumber has been taken out, and if the weather continues favorable she may be raised. It will be remembered she recently went ashore at Pilot's Island, near the entrance to Green Bay.
