      VESSELS ASHORE. - Capt. Stewart, of the steamer MICHIGAN, which arrived on Sunday, reports the schooners B.F. WADE and CALVIN SNELL ashore above Presque Isle. The SNELL was laden with 13,500 bushels of wheat, from Chicago for Montreal, and the WADE was laden with flour, wheat, oats and pork, from Kenosha for Buffalo. Neither of the vessels were leaking, but a strong northeaster was blowing, which was unfavorable for them. With good weather they would be got off without injury. - Detroit Advertiser.
