Disasters: The schooners Wanderer and Seabird, loaded with coal from Cleveland, are ashore on the east end of Kelley's Island. The scow Vampire drifted at Chicanoalee Reef and is beached in good position. The schooner Wanderer is said to be broken in two. The scow Seabird is not so dangerously situated.

A Milwaukee dispatch of yesterday says: the wind changed to-day releasing the ice bound fleet with the exception of the sail vessels which will be towed out to-morrow.
