Sand Beach.---Last week the schooner ANNA P. GROVER, of Vermillion, Ohio, went ashore six miles north of this place. She is the property of Captain Horner Durand, her commander, and was loaded with 22,000 bushels of oats from Chicago to Buffalo. Captain Durand came down here, to get a tug to help him. About 2 o'clock the tug CRUSADER came into the harbor and was promptly engaged for the job, and by dark had the GROVER safely alongside the pier. There was no serious damage either to hull or cargo, and the CRUSADER took the schgooner in tow for Port Huron, where she discharged her cargo and went into drydock
