VESSEL ASHORE. - The scow-brig W. BURNS was driven ashore a few days since at Point aux Barque, on Lake Michigan, a place not far distant from the entrance to Green Bay. A tug has been sent to her assistance. She is high and dry.
      There is also a vessel ashore at Skillagalee, and one on the North Fox Island, the names of which are unknown. The tug LEVIATHAN, at Mackinaw will doubtless attend to both of these last named vessels. - Detroit Free Press, 13th.
