Special Telegram to the Inter Ocean. -- Sheboygan, Wis., Oct. 12. -- The scow HERCULES, of Pine lake, anchored under North Point this morning, dragged her anchor, jettisoned the deck load of bark and wood, and finally dragged ashore this afternoon. She lies under High Clay Point, three miles north of Sheboygan. The vessel and cargo, owned by Fox, of Pine lake, were uninsured. The crew were rescued by the lifesaving crew. The schooner J. DUVAL, at anchor under the Point, is dragging slowly, but will probably hold out.
