STEAMERS EAST IN THE ICE.
      Across-the-Lake Boats on Lake Michigan Frozen in Near the East Shore.
      Milwaukee, Wis., Feb. 15. -- For the first time this winter the ice in lake Michigan is giving the across-the-lake boats considerable trouble. Advices from the east shore say that four or five steamers are fast in the Ice-pack which lines the east shore of the lake.
At Muskegon the ferry SHENANGO No. 2 is in the ice outside. The SHENANGO left Milwaukee late Saturday night and became firmly Lodged in the ice three miles off Muskegon harbor. She is slowly moving northward with the ice, and this has added to the belief that she has become disabled.
Capt. James Reld has received a telegram from Ludington urging him to hurry the tug PROCTOR back as speedily as possible, no matter what her condition, as all of the Flint & Pere Marquette steamers there, the huge car ferry included, were imprisoned in the ice pack. The steamers of the line are all over there now.
