      . . . . .

      The schr. BALLOU, Capt. Grampy, from Oswego with a cargo of coal for Oak Orcard, went ashore on the night of the 12 inst. on Summerville Beach. The tug MANNING went to her assistance, but owing to the heavy sea was unable to save her, and had to return to Charlotte. It is thought that the vessel will be hauled off not much damaged.
