The schr. MOUNT VERNON loaded with railroad ties, is ashore at Dean's Pier, 6 miles south of Kewaunee. She went on during Thursday last. She lies broadside on and well out. It is thought however, that she is not damaged to any great extent, and that the tug UNION which has gone to her assistance from here, will have success in getting her of and into port. She is owned by John Berryman, of Detroit and is insured in the Republic for $8,000
