HOLLAND, Oct. 20. - The schooner KATE LYONS from Benton Harbor, tried to make the harbor in the gale last night. She missed the entrance, and went ashore 20 feet north of the north pier. The crew escaped in safety, but the schooner is fast breaking up. The wind is still blowing a gale, shifting to northwest. None of the Chicago boats have ventured out.
