VESSEL ASHORE. -- We learn from the Chicago Press of the 14th, that the schooner LEWIS IRWIN is reported ashore near City West, about 10 miles west of Michigan City. She went ashore on Monday night, and struck so close to where the schooner ADVANCE lay on the beach that she carried awau the bowsprit of the latter vessel, and did considerable damage to her. The IRWIN is owned by Messrs. E. & J. Oldfield, lumber dealer of Chicago, and had on board a cargo of lumber for them. She is valued at $4,500 and it is hoped she can be got off.
