Detroit, Mich., Nov. 4. -- The schooner WEST SIDE, loaded with coal, went on the beach at Crane's Point, near Sand Beach, this morning, in a blinding snow storm. After much difficulty she was released by the tug KATE WILLIAMS and towed into Sand Beach harbor, having lost her yawl boat and sustained some slight damage, which will not detain her. She was lying in a very dangerous position.
