Sand beach, Mich., Nov. 22. -- The schooner YOUNG AMERICA, loaded with railroad iron for Point St. Ignace, went ashore just north of this harbor and filled in ten minutes. She is owned in Buffalo and well insured. An expedition is expected with steam pumps tomorrow to release her. She lies in an exposed position. A sea from any northerly direction will make shirt work of her. The weather tonight is fine.
