Horn's Pier, Wis., Nov. 6. -- The scow MARIA, loaded with cordwood, bound for Milwaukee, lying at anchor in Hedgehog harbor, while trying to get under way, drifted ashore. She lies on a rocky bottom and is full of water, and will probably go to pieces if any sea makes. A tug has been telegraphed for to Milwaukee, and if it arrives in time it is thought she will be gotten off without difficulty. -- Inter Ocean.
