Parker and Millen received word yesterday afternoon that the big steamer MINNEAPOLIS, a sister ship to the St. PAUL, was ashore on Point Pelee reef, Lake Erie. She was bound up the lakes with a cargo of coal and railroad iron. Her bottom was reported to be full of water. They immediately dispatched the wreckers WALEN and BALIZE and a steam light from here to her assistance.
