      SCHOONER ASHORE. - We learn that the schooner ISLAND QUEEN, bound from Port Huron for Chicago with from 80 to 100,000 feet of lumber, was driven on the foot of Bois Blanc Island, Lake Huron in the southeaster early last Thursday morning. She is hard on, in only about three feet water, and her hull has filled. The tug OSWEGO, Capt. Kimball, has gone to her assistance, with two steam pumps.
The ISLAND QUEEN is owned by Henry A. Prescott, a resident of Lawrence, Mass. She is insured in the Northwestern. - Detroit Tribune.
