THE "MARY B. HALE" AGROUND - The tug WINSLOW arrived up yesterday, and went to an up-town dock to clean out. Capt. Swain states that on last Monday, during a southeast gale and thick weather, the schooner MARY B. HALE, loaded with corn frm Chicago to Buffalo, struck bottom on what is known as Scarecrow Island, about 15 miles south of Alpena. The WINSLOW went to her assistance, and after six or 7 hours pulling, and breaking a hawser, succeeded in getting her off without injury, and towed her to Lake Erie.
