We regret to state, that our enterprising produce merchant, Alex. Bunnell, Esq., met with a serious loss on Wednesday night last. Two scows, the Richard Boyle, and Esau, laden with 15,000 bbls. flour, were proceeding to Cayuga, down the Grand River when unfortunately they came in contact with a snag in the channel, which so much injured their bottoms as to sink them almost immediately. Every exertion is being made to get the flour out of the water, and by this time no doubt it is deposited on a dry spot. [Brantford Courier]
