ASHORE. -- The Express says the schooner CORNELIA, bound from Chicago for this port with a cargo of wheat is ashore on Long Point, about five miles above the lighthouse. The tug RELIEF was dispatched Saturday night to her assistance, but the strong gale of yesterday probably used her up. Her cargo was insured in the Buffalo Mutual.

The schooner CORNELIA, which went ashore on Long Point in the equinoctial blow, has been got off and was brought into port Monday night, by the wrecking tug RELIEF. She is a hard looking craft, and it will cost five or six thousand dollars to make the necessary repairs.
