ASHORE AND WRECKED.
On Monday night during thick weather on Lake Huron, the schooner C.K. DIXON, loaded with cedar posts, was driven ashore on or near Middle Island. She became a total wreck, and has been abandoned. Her bow is said to be in nine feet of water and her stern in eight feet. Her outfit has been taken off. We were not able to learn yeaterday whether she was insured or not, but it was the impression along the docks, in marine circles, that she was not.
