The captain of the schr. TARTAR, ashore at Pt. au Pelee reports that his vessel is in a bad condition, and that he will abandon her to the underwriters. Her deck has been broken up, and it hardly seems probable that she can be got off this season.

The schr. TATAR which went ashore last Fall, and at present is high and dry and apparently unharmed, is to be dismantled, the underwriters not deaming the undertaking of getting her off and fitting her for sea a paying one. She was built at Fairport, and came out in 1853. Parties have gone to the wreck to recover her spars and rigging. - Detroit free Press

The Herald of Cleveland, says the schr. TATAR which went ashore last fall, at present is high and dry and apparently unharmed, is to be dismantled forthwith by the inderwriters, as it is doubtful if she can again be made into a profitable sailing boat. She was built at Fairport and came out in 1853. Parties have gone to the wreck to recover the spars and the rigging.
