ASHORE. -- The schooner SAVANNAH, Capt. F. McCumber, was driven ashore yesterday about noon, opposite the stone house, below the north pier. She had been to Black Rock to discharge her cargo, and in attempting to make our harbor, found it necessary to cast anchor. But the cable parting, she was drifted ashore as above stated.
She is owned by Oliver Lee , and will probably be got off without much damage.
