Port Huron, Sept. 20. -- The schooner E. P. ROYCE, bound from Escanaba to Cleveland, with a cargo of telegraph poles, went ashore on Monday morning early, during a gale, near Point au Sable, on the Canadian shore. She lies in four feet of water and is leaking badly. The tug J. H. MARTIN left this port today and will attempt her release by dredging. The schooner is partly insured. She is owned by E. P. Royce, of Escanaba.
