Full Text

An Associated Press dispatch from Kelley Island says that the little propeller GOLDEN EAGLE, in trying to work her way through the ice, became fast and sprung a leak when about a mile from that place yesterday. At the time the dispatch was sent she was sinking. She is in the steamboat channel between the Island and Sandusky, and where the water is about 24 feet deep. The passengers and baggage were rescued in safety, and aid has been sent to the crew.
