Waves Dashing Over Vessel.

Detroit, Sept. 9th - P.P. Bissell, local agent of the Algoma Central Steamship company, owner of the steamer King Edward, now lying on the rocks of Chantry Island, at the entrance to Southampton harbor, has returned to Detroit from the wreck. He reports the wreckers were storm bound in Alpena over Sunday and did not reach the wreck until yesterday. The rough weather has not done the King Edward any good, as the waves were dashing over her port when Mr. Bissell left. The vessel lies in about four or five feet of water. Her injuries cannot be determined until the wreckers make a thorough examination.
