ASHORE. -- The scow schooner N. G. from Grand River, Canada, went ashore near Windmill Point, yesterday, and we understand was a total loss. There are two vessels of the same denomination, bearing the above significant cognomen, one belonging in Canada and the other belonging here. The lost vessel was American property, and was commanded by Capt. Winchell. The cause assigned for the disaster is that she refused to obey her helm.

The schooner N. G., which went ashore near Windmill Point on the 12th inst., is not a total loss; and it is thought she can be got off at a small cost, and with but slight damage to her hull.
