VESSELS ASHORE. -- The schooners DE WITT CLINTON and MILAN, both loaded with goods, salt, &c. for ports up the lake, went ashore in Dunkirk last week during a hard blow. The MILAN got loose from her fastenings to the wharf in the night, while the captain and hands were asleep on board, and their first intimation they had of their disaster, was the thumping of the vessel on the beach. The loading of both vessels has been taken out and stored.
