The tug BRUCE returned this afternoon from the schooner BAY CITY, which vessel is ashore on East Sister reef. The storm which commenced last evening prevented anything further being done, and the probability is now that she will go to pieces. The BRUCE took on 1,000 bushels of the corn, and some 1,600 bushels were thrown overboard. The vessel is owned by Mr. Cheeseborn.
