WENT ASHORE IN THE FOG.
      The Schooner ELLEN and MARY Strike, on the Island of Anticosti.
Montreal, Aug. 24 -- News was received here late last night from the light house keeper at West Point that the schooner ELLEN and MARY went ashore in a dense fog before daylight yesterday morning, two miles east of English Bay, the northwestern point of the Island of Anticosti. The schooner, besides a crew of seven on board, had 60 passengers, mostly women and children. It is stated that the only boat carried by the schooner was smashed in pieces immediately after the vessel struck, and as it is impossible to reach her from the shore, it is probable, should the storm which threatens break, all on board will perish. When the fog lifted yesterday afternoon those on board could be plainly seen from the shore rushing about the deck as though distracted.
