Port Huron, Sept. 18. -- The schooner GEORGE C. THURSTON, while running back from Lake Huron last night in the storm, was beached on the Canadian shore, about one-fourth of a mile from the river. She is high and dry with a large side out of water. Several tugs were working at her today but failed to pull her off.

      Port Huron, Sept. 20. -- The schooner GEORGE THURSTON, which went ashore at Point Edwards on Sunday night is leaking badly. The tug A. J. SMITH, which has been endeavoring to release her, dredged a channel alongside of her and tried to pull the vessel in it. Failing in this the steam pump has been secured. She will be pumped out, when it is probable she will be released.
