      ASHORE. -- The captain of the propeller MAINE, which arrived down Sunday, reports seeing a large black schooner ashore on Middle Bass reef, with a tug at work on her. The name of the vessel or tug he was unable to obtain, but the schooner LIZZIE LAW is supposed to be the one, as her description accords with the one detailed by the captain. --- Detroit Free Press.
