BLOWN ASHORE IN A STORM. -- Captain Varner, of the schooner ELLINGTON, arrived in this city yesterday by steamer from Port Huron, who reports his vessel having gone ashore on Lake Huron some eighteen miles this side of Point au Barque. The vessel first struck a rock, then buffing up ran on a reef and shortly after filled with water. She is owned by Capt. V., and is insured for only one half her value, and if not got off will prove a serious loss to him. --- Detroit Free Press.

SCHOONER ELLINGTON TO GO INTO DRY DOCK. -- The schooner ELLINGTON, which went ashore on Lake Huron a few days since, has been got off and brought to this port by the tug OSWEGO, reaching here yesterday morning. The ELLINGTON has sustained serious injuries and will require a large amount of repairs. She goes into dry-dock this morning we understand.
