The schooner SACRAMENTO which we reported yesterday, as having gone ashore at Cleveland, lies on her broadside, and is loaded with lumber, but will probably be got off.

The Cleveland Leader states that the schooner SACRAMENTO, of Presque Isle, laden with lumber, which was beached a week ago outside the West pier, has been lightened, and was towed into the river yesterday, by the steamer TELEGRAPH, having suffered no other damage than the loss of her rudder.
