THE SCOW McDONALD ASHORE. - We are informed by a gentleman who has come from Long Point that the Canadian scow JOHN A. McDONALD went on the beach about five miles above the Point last Friday night. She was taking on a load of pail wood from the shore, for Black Rock, when a strong south wind sprung up and drove her on the beach. The dock at which she was loading gave way and was carried ashore with the McDONALD. A tug has gone to her assistance from Port Rowan, but some doubts are felt of the tug's ability to pull the scow off, as she is well out. The McDONALD is an old craft, and will not bear much hard usage.
