THE MASSILLON ASHORE. - The schooner MASSILLON, which left Buffalo Nov. 13th, with a cargo of 400 tons coal, is ashore at Sleeping Bear Bay. From a telegraphic dispatch received by her owners from Grand Haven, we think the
vessel cannot be injured much. The dispatch says: - " The vessel went ashore on the 29th, is making no water, and can be got off by lightering and tug assistance."
      The MASSILLON is a three-masted schooner, of 397 tons register; insured for $14,000; calsses A 1; was built here in 1857, and is a substantial, stout craft. She is owned by L. Rawson and S.S. Coe. - Cleveland Herald.
