Milwaukee, Dec. 2. - The steamer HARLEM landed yesterday the crew of the steamer C.S. PARNELL, which burned and sank yesterday off Squaw Island, Lake Michigan. Thanksgiving dinner was being eaten, when smoke was seen coming from the coal near the steering gear. The crew got two lines of hose at work, but it was soon discovered that the entire cargo was on fire and Capt. William Griffin ordered the men into the lifeboats. The PARNELL was abandoned six miles from shore.
