ASHORE. - The schooner WESTCHESTER, of Chicago, ran ashore at Good Harbor on Saturday morning, after taking on a cargo of wood. The wind shifted suddenly to the northwest, which drove her on the beach. The tug CAROLINE WILLIAMS, with steam pump, has gone to her assistance. The WESTCHESTER is one of the old settlers, having been built at Huron, Ohio, in 1847, and is 207 tons burden.
