Sand Beach.---Last Thursday the schooner CONSUELO, lumber laden, from Presuq'Isle to Detroit, ran ashore at Port Hope. A tug was telegraphed for, and the CASTLE, from Port Huron, responded. On her way up and abreast of here, she picked up the life saving crew and took them along to help run lines, etc.,but a heavy sea prevented any work being done, and the life savers took the schooner's crew off and brought them down here to the station where they are being cared for. Sunday morning, the CASTLE, with the scow LULA WHITING, to be used as a lighter, started out to release the CONSUELO if possible.
