SCHOONER EVALINE BATES ASHORE AND OFF. - The schooner EVALINE BATES, of Fairport, ran on the rocks at Detour Passage, on Tuesday morning of last week, while on her way to Marquette with coal. In a short time the hold was filled with eight feet of water. On Wednesday a tug pulled her off, after putting on board a steam pump. The hole made by the rocks was found to be directly between the forward hatch and the stem. A considerable amount of coal was taken off, when the tug succeeded in bringing her tow to Port Huron.
