Elk Rapids, Mich., Oct. 31. -- The schooner JOHN SCHUETTE of Two Rivers broke away from the dock and went on the beach in the gale last Saturday. She is lying in about three feet of water on a sandy bottom. She is sprung some on the side, and is full of water. Capt. John Hubbard of Toledo is on his way here. The stranded boat is insured. There is another schooner ashore five miles north of here but her name cannot be learned. The gale played havoc with the telegraph service.
