. . . . .
ASHORE. - The want of a light on the pier on Sunday evening caused the schooner JOSEPHINE LAWRENCE, loaded with lumber, to miss the entrance to the harbor, and she went ashore north of the pier, just where the FANNY & FLOY lay until got off last week. She will not probably receive much injury, if the gale subsides soon. - Milwaukee Sentinel, 12th.
