SCHOONER BEERS ASHORE.
Leland, April 19. -- The schooner ALICE M. BEERS, light, from Milwaukee, had her canvas carried away on Lake Michigan in last night's gale and was driven ashore on Sleeping Bear Point. The vessel went high and dry and the crew were able to walk ashore. It is thought that the vessel may be released, as she lies on a sandy bottom.
