East Tawas, Mich., May 18. -- The schooner HARVEY BISSELL went ashore at 3 o'clock p. m. about two hundred feet west of the East tawas Salt & Lumber Co.'s dock. They have got lines to the dock. A sea is rolling against her from the southwest, but as the bottom here is sandy she will probably sustain but little damage, though her load of coal and railway iron may have to be lightered.
