VESSEL ASHORE. -- Captain Varner, of the steamer PHILO PARSONS, reports the schooner CLYDE ashore at Cedar point, mouth of Sandusky Bay. She was bound from Toledo to Boston, with a cargo of black walnut lumber, and was driven back by stress of weather to Sandusky Harbor for shelter. While attempting to make that entrance, she struck and was driven hard on. She was a vessel well on in years, and will doubtless suffer severly before gatting off. -- Detroit Free Press.

      The schr. CLYDE, which was driven ashore a few days since on Cedar Pt., at the entrance to Sandusky Bay, has since been got off and towed to this port, arriving here yesterday afternoon in tow of the stm. (pollywog) GENERAL SHERMAN.
      Nearly all of her cargo was saved in good order, and none, it is apprehended, will be entirely lost. The vessel will be palced in Campbell & Owens drydock for repairs, and if found sufficiently seaworthy, will doubtless prosecute her intended voyage to Boston, Mass.
