      SCHOONER DAUNTLESS ASHORE. - By a letter to Captain D.P. Dobbins, from Mackinac, we learn that the schooner DAUNTLESS, belomging to S.V.R. Watson, Esq., of this city, is ashore on the lower end of Bois Blanc Island. The Capt, went to Mackinac in a sail boat to get the tug RELIEF to go to her assistance. The DAUNTLESS was hard on the rocks, with a heavy running sea. The RELIEF had but just succeeded in getting
the propeller MICHIGAN off from where she was ashore, near Mackinac. When she answered the call, and went to rescue the DAUNTLESS from her perilous position.
