VESSELS ASHORE. -- The schooner PERRY HANNAH, laden with cedar posts for Chicago, is ashore on the south east point of Plum Island, Death's Door, and in bad condition, as the bottom is rocky. The steam barge ANNIE LAURIE tried to release her on Sunday, but parted a 7-inch hawser and gave up the attempt. The bow of the HANNAH was out two feet, but she was receiving no damage and had no water in her when the ANNIE LAURIE left.
