      At daylight yesterday a vessel supposed to be the scow WILLIAM KELLEY, of Cleveland, was sighteed below Windmill Pt. flying signals of distress. Several tugs put out to her assistance, but it was found she was hard aground on a reef, and the only change for the rescue of her crew was by the lifeboat. About 12:)) yesterday a tug left this harbor with a boat of the proper character, intending to get to the windward of the stranded craft, and float the lifeboat down to her. It was found impossible to accommplish this end, and the lifeboat was subsequently ferried to the Canada side to be sent to the rescue of the sufferers. We have not learned the results.
