SCHOONER ASHORE. -- Milwaukee, Sept. 15. -- The schooner NAPOLEON went ashore six miles north of here tonight, and will be a total wreck. The life-saving crew is at work and will probably save those on board. The captain and one other reached shore in a small boat.

The tug J. J. HAGERMAN pulled the schooner NAPOLEON off the beach Saturday and started for Milwaukee Harbor with her. When on North Point, however, the NAPOLEON rolled over, in which shape she now lies at the end of the harbor piers. The schooner LOTTIE MASON has been taken alongside, and efforts are being made to right the unfortunate craft.
