      . . . . .

      The schooner FRED HILL, Capt. Waffle, laden with lumber for Milwaukee, went ashore at Middle Island, Lake Huron, in the recent foggy weather. By throwing most of her cargo overboard, she was got off, and is probably now at Milwaukee. The ZADOC PRATT, which we noticed yesterday as ashore north of Milwaukee, first was ashore on Middle Island, and got off by throwing over 50 tons of iron. - Chicago
