schooners ashore. -- From the captain of the schooner GROTON it is learned that the schooner GRENADA is still on the bottom at Duncan City. She has a cargo of stucco on board. She is said to be in good condition. Steps are now being taken to raise her and take her to Manitowoc. The captain also states that the schooner MARY E. PEREW, which is ashore on Cheboygan Point with a cargo of coal, has been examined by Captain Kirkland, of the wrecking tug LEVIATHAN, who thinks she can be raised without much trouble. She is still in the same condition as she was last fall. --- Chicago Journal.

Captain Nickerson, of Cleveland, is on his way to Duncan City to look after the schooner GRENADA, which lies there sunk alongside of the dock. This vessel will be raised at once and towed to the river for repairs. It is probable that an effort will be made during the summer to raise the schooner NIMROD, which was sunk near Port Stanley in the fall of 1874 by the schooner MICHIGAN. The owners of the vessel and the insurance interests will probably combine.
