THE PIER LIGHT. - The schooner MARK H. SIBLEY, Capt. Charles Averill, in going into Chicago at 11 o'clock on Saturday night, ran on to the beach some 50 yards north of the north pier. The Captain says there was no light in the Pier light house--and he took a light on the shore for the Pier light which led him ashore. The water being smooth, his vessel sustained no injury. Just as he was getting off the shore, (near 1 o'clock) he saw some one come and light up the light-house.
