SCHOONER KELDERHOUSE HAD TO BE BEACHED. - The schooner JOHN KELDERHOUSE had to be beached under the west arm of the break-water at Cleveland, Sunday, to prevent her from going down in deep water, as she had five feet of water in her hold. The KELDERHOUSE, with the schooner BELLE HANSCOMB, left there in tow of the tug JAMES REID, bound for the rivers with coal. The KELDERHOUSE was loaded too deep, and she was only out a short time when she began to take water freely The HANSCOMB was dropped and the REID headed for the harbor with the KELDERHOUSE. The leaking vessel was towed under the break-water, where she was put on the beach by the tug.
      Part of her deck load of coal was taken off and placed on the tug REID. The vessel will be pumped out.
