VESSELS ASHORE. -- The Chicago Tribune, of Wednesday, says: -- "We learn that the wind on last Friday morning was very heavy on the east shore of the lake, and blew a number of lumber vessels ashore. The LIVERPOOL is a total loss at Grand Haven, and the following schooners are also ashore at the same place, but will be easily got off: FALCON; FRANCIS; Wm. TELL; LADY JANE; TWO CHARLIES. At Muskegon the brig SEBASTOPOL and the schooner SPENCER and NORTH CAPE are ashore, and the SPEED is sunk in the river. They will also be got off without serious injury.
