      FURTHER FROM SCHR."ANDOVER" ASHORE.- The papers have reported the
schooner ANDOVER ashore at Point au Pelee. We learn, says the Cleveland Herald,
by the officers of the steamer MINNESOTA, which came in last evening on her way
down, that the ANDOVER was ashore on one of the "Hen and Chickens," and that her
mate and two men had come into Toledo, in a yawl, for a tug, and that the weather had
been so stormy that the tug had not been able to get to her. Fears were entertained
that the schooner had gone to pieces in the gale of Tuesday night. Two men and the
were left on the schooner. The Toledo papers of yesterday say nothing more than the
tug R. ROBBINS had gone to her relief.
      She was bound from Oswego, which port she left on the 28th ult., for Toledo with
300 bbls salt. She is an old vessel and was formerly owned in Cleveland.

      SCHOONER ANDOVER. - A telegraphic dispatch from Capt. Barse, informs us
that the case of this vessel, ashore at the "Hen and Chickens," is hopeless. The
steam pump makes no impression upon her, and she will probably be abandoned.
