      The schr. REBECCA, which went ashore on the east side of Kelley's Island, Lake Erie, has not been got afloat yet. She, however, has been got up on ways and all that is now necessary is the arrival of a tug to launch her once more. She is in good repair and ready for business as soon as floated. - Toledo Blade

      The schooner REBECCA, ashore at Kelley's Island, was hauled off by Mr. S. Francis, a Sandusky house-mover, and she has proceeded on her voyage. So we learn from a letter from Sandusky.
