Sand Beach, Nov. 12. -- The schooner MARQUIS, laden with block stone for the Canadian Soo canal, went ashore on a boulder bottom at 4 o'clock this morning. She was scuttled to keep the wreck from bouncing to pieces. The crew were taken ashore in safety.
      A black three-masted schooner, supposed to be the C. H. JOHNSON is ashore at Forest Bay. The MYSTIC and the life-saving crew have gone to her assistance.
