      VESSEL ASHORE. - By telegraph from Detroit, to Capt. E. P. Dorr, we learn that the schooner H. C. WINSLOW, loaded with coal, bound up, went on to the south end of the Middle Islands, and is there now, scuttled. The tug OSWEGO has gone to her assistance.

The E. P. DORR has in tow the wreck of the bark WINSLOW with three steam pumps, raised from Middle Island the day before the storm. They will proceed to Buffalo as soon as the sea goes down.

The tug E.P. DORR, which came here a few days since to take off a supply of coal, and left again on a mysterious mission, has succeeded in raising the schr. H. C. WINSLOW, which vessel it will be remembered, sunk last fall with a cargo of coal near one of the islands at the head of Lake Erie. She has been towed into Cleveland, where she will remain until further disposed of. --- Detroit Free Press

      . . . . .

The Barque R. C.WINSLOW (sic), which was sunk last fall at Middle island, was towed into port yesterday, having been raised by the Aetna Insurance Company, under the superintendence of Civt. Bidwell. It took a good deal of work to raise her three steam pumps being employed. Having raised her Mr. Bidwell started down the lake with her, but came near losing both vessel and tug in the late storm, when off Kelly's Island.

      The schr. H.C. WINSLOW, which in November last sunk with a cargo of coal in Lake Erie near Middle Island, made her appearance here yesterday in better condition, to all appearances, than ever she was. Some time during the past summer a party of wreckers with the tug E. P. DORR left this port in search of some unknown vessel, as was stated at the time. It shortly afterwards proved the result of the expedition was in finding of the above vessel and taking her to Buffalo where she has since been rebuilt and refitted throughout.
