VESSEL ASHORE - The scow EAGLE, Captain Baker, sprung a leak and went ashore at Six Mile Creek, on Saturday night. She was loaded with 120 tons of ore from Buffalo to Erie. The ore is insured, but the vessel is not. She can be got off easily at present. About $800 was expended for repairing her last spring. She is owned by Mr. Russell, of the firm of Bates & Russell, shipbrokers of Cleveland. - Erie Dispatch.
