VESSEL ASHORE.---During the gale of Thursday night last, the schooner NAVIGATOR Clawson, Master, bound hence for Kalamazoo, and light, in the attempt to make the harbor at Michigan City, carried away her fore-sheet, and broached to, going ashore at 9 o'clock, about one hundred feet north of the north pier, where she now lies full of water.
She will probably be got off without difficulty. She is owned by Captain Clawson, of Kalamazoo, and is, we learn, fully insured at Buffalo. ---- Chicago Journal.
