Marinette, Wis., Dec. 19. -- The steamer RUMBELL, owned by Captain E. B. Graham of Fish Creek, is now at the bottom of the river with a large cargo of fish. She came into the harbor about 11 o'clock last night and tied up at a dock after bucking considerable ice. About 1 o'clock she began sinking and the crew had to leave her hurridely. It is supposed that her planking was cut through while she was breaking the ice.
