Alpena, Mich., June 26. -- The steamer SHAMROCK, Capt. Morgan, sprung a leak and is waterlogged off Presque Isle. The boat was bound from Midland to Toledo with a cargo of lath. The pumping engine and siphon refused to work and the boat filled rapidly. The crew of men were rescued by the steamer PESHTIGO and transferred to the tug ROB ROY, which brought them here at noon. The tugs OWEN and RALPH are now searching for the abandoned steamer. The SHAMROCK was formerly the barge HANNAFORD and is owned by T. M. Ryan of Buffalo. The boat registers 403 tons, and is valued at $8,500.
