The steamer NYACK is at the bottom of the river at Grand Rapids, and her cargo is being removed to scows and transferred to her owners dock warehouses. While crossing from Milwaukee to Grand Rapids on Monday, the NYACK ran into a field of heavy ice. A bad leak was caused, but it was not until the boat had almost reached port that it was noticed she was filling up.
