      ASHORE. - The schooner YORKTOWN, Capt. Lacey, that left Milwaukee last Thursday with the fleet for Buffalo, loaded with wheat, went ashore on Friday night or early Saturday morning, at McGalpin's Bay in the Straits of Mackinac. A tug went to her relief on Saturday, but it was too rough to render her any aid. At last accounts she had not leaked any, and being a strong, and substantial vessel, she will probably be got off without any material damage. - Milwaukee News.
