By telegraph to E.P. Dorr, we learn that the schr. D. McINNES, of Hamilton, formerly the schr. TARRY NOT, of Rochester, is ashore 10 miles west of Oak Orchard, American side of Lake Ontario. We have no further particulars.

      The tug TORNADO was sent immediately to the assistance of D. McINNES alias TARRY NOT that went ashore at Oak Orchard, and which we noticed on the 13th. Soon after the dispatch left news came that the tug would not be needed, and the probability is that the vessel is off.

      The tug TORNADO, which was sent up to Thirty Mile Pt. for the purpose of getting off the schr. McINNIS returned to port last night, not having accomplished her object. It was found that that the vessel had 5 ft. of water in her hold, and as the tug had no pumps aboard, it was deemed useless to attempt to release her without them. The TORNADO left here this noon with a couple of pumps, and it is thought she will have no difficulty in getting the vessel off. She lies on a smooth rock bottom. The McINNIS was bound from Hamilton to Owen Sound, light and went ashore Wednesday, in a fog. - Oswego Times.

      The schr. D. McINNIS, which recently went ashore at Thirty Mile Pt., has been got off by the tug TORNADO and towed to Port Dalhousie. The vessel is but slightly damaged. One pump kept her free. She will go into drydock for repairs. The tug arrived back yesterday noon. - Oswego Times.
