Early this morning it was reported that the schooner "D. Freeman," bound from Belleville to Fair Haven, light, to load coal, was ashore about seven miles west of Oswego and a short distance from Lewis' Bluff. It was soon learned that the report was true. the "Freeman" left Belleville yesterday about noon. About 2 o'clock this morning the captain "picked up" Oswego light and an hour later his vessel was high up on the beach. The crew jumped ashore and came to the city. The "Freeman" lays on a gravel bottom and too high up on the beach to sustain much damge from the seas. It is expected that when the sea runs down she can be gotten off without much damage.
