The schooner PILGRIM, which went ashore at Grand River, some four weeks ago, was attempted to be got off by the steamer CHAUTAUQUE during last week, with the aid of scows, which were used as lighters. She was got as far as Point Abino, where one of the scows sunk, throwing the vessel on her beam ends. The steamer LONDON answered her signal of distress, and attempted to bring her down to this port, but failed. The probabilities, as we learn, are, that the vessel will be righted and got in.
