THE SCHOONER HOLMES. -- The schooner HOLMES went ashore north of the piers at Grand Haven on the morning of the 6th, but no lives were lost, and the impression among boat men is that the boat and cargo will be saved. She was loaded with merchandise from Chicago for parties in this and other places.
