BRIG HUTCHISON ASHORE. - The brig C.J. HUTCHISON struck the north harbor pier at Kenosha, on Sunday, while entering, and drifted upon the beach north of the harbor, where she filled with water. The HUTCHISON is an old vessel, and it is doubtful whether she can withstand the force of the heavy sea running. She was built in 1845, measured 253 tons, rated B 1, and is valued at $6,000. N. Ludington, of Chicago, owned her.
