The Tribune learns that the schooner reported ashore and filled with water, near Cherry Creek, is the JOHN RICHARDS, owned by Mr. O'Callaghan of that city.
She had a load of shingles and bark, taken on at Sand Beach for Detroit and Toledo. A tug will be sent to her, and it is thought she may be righted. She is not insured.
