      VESSEL ASHORE. -- The schooner LAPWING, Capt. Dunbar, of and from this port for Farmer's Pier, went ashore north of the North Pier at St. Joseph on Saturday morning. The vessel is high and dry on the beach, broadside on. She was driven ashore by the heavy swell, there being no wind by which she could claw off. The LAPWING was an old craft, of but little value. Crew and luggage all saved. --- Chicago Tribune.
