      ASHORE. - The schooner ELIZABETH, of Oswego, loaded with lumber for Kenosha, made the light of that port Saturday night, but was prevented from running in by the severe storm then prevailing, and while rounding to anchor she ran ashore a little below the north pier. Rapid progress was made in unloading the vessel on Monday and Tuesday, but the northeaster of Tuesday night and yesterday must have imbedded her deeply in the sand and rendered the task of getting her off more difficult than ever. - Milwaukee Sentinel.
