      ASHORE. - The schooner ST. ANDREWS went ashore on North Manitou Island in the
gale Sunday. She has a cargo of 400 tons of coal. Her Captain, Harry Fait arrived here
yesterday, and took the tug McQUEEN down to get his vessel off. - Chicago Tribune.

      The Chicago Tribune learns from the captain of the POTOMAC that the tug McQUEEN has been unable to get off the schooner St. ANDREWS, although she had thrown overboard all her cargo. When the POTOMAC passed her, the McQUEEN had parted all her hawsers and started for South Island.

      . . . . .

      Among the arrivals yesterday, we note that of the schooner St. ANDREW, lately ashore at the North Manitou, with 180 tons of coal. Before the tug McQUEEN left her, she placed three anchors, by which the schooner might heave herself off when the wind or tide should loosen her. This she did last Saturday night, and immediately sailed to this port, leaving her cargo on the island. The vessel is very slightly damaged, but will be dry-docked and put in thorough repair before sailing again. She did not find it necessary to use the steam pump she had on board at all coming up. - Chicago Press.

THE SCHOONER ST. ANDREW. - This vessel which went ashore at the North Manitous not long since, has been got off, and taken to Chicago for repairs. She had to discharge her cargo of coal on the island, where it still remains. The vessel is but slightly damaged. - Milwaukee Sentinel.

      The Wrecking Schr. C.J. MARSHALL. - Captain Van Norman, of the schooner CHIEF JUSTICE MARSHALL, leaves tomorrow for South Manitou, where his vessel is lying. He will first take off the coal left by the St. ANDREW on North Manitou, after which he will proceed with the MARSHALL to Erie, Pa., to fill a contract which he has recently made to remove the machinery of the steamer GOLDEN GATE, which now obstructs Erie Harbor.
