The schooner REED CASE, mentioned in a previouc issue, as having got aground off Middle Bass Island on Sunday evening, was released yesterday morning. The schooner AMERICAN EAGLE worked at her all day Monday and during Monday night. The tug MYSTIC also worked at her Monday night. The schooner was loaded with grain, and was bound here from Milwaukee. About 5,000 bushels of her cargo were lightered onto the EAGLE, about 3,000 bushels onto the scow TRAUX, and between 500 and 600 bushels thrown overboard or given to the people in the Island region, who went out to the stranded schooner in boats. Finally enough grain was gotten out of the schooner to enable the EAGL and MYSTIC to pull her off, and they then towed her and the TRUAX to this port. With the exception of the breaking of some lines and checks the schooner sustained no damage. -- -- Sandusky Register.
