      ASHORE AT POINT AU PELEE. - The schooner MARYSBURG, hailing from Picton,
Lake Ontario, during the thick weather on Sunday night mistook the light at Point au
Pelee and ran ashore on the west side of it. She is well out; has no cargo on board, and
was bound westward for freight. She is 190 tons burthen, was built at South Bay in 1870,
and is valued at $11,000 gold. The tug GLADIATOR has gone from Detroit to render
her assistance.
