      The vessel ashore near Windmill Pt. proves to be the ELI BATES, Capt. McEwen, coal laden from Cleveland to this port. Her canvas was blown away in the storm yesterday morning before daylight, when both her anchors were let go. After riding at anchor a short time both chains parted and she drifted on Rose's reef . The crew after clinging to the rigging from early morning until 1:00 last night were rescued by the aid of the yawl of the schr. WM. B. OGDEN, manned with a pick up crew from this city. The condition of the BATES is unknown.
