p.2 Barge Sunk - On Thursday night, the barge Martin, belonging to Messrs. Stewart & Holcomb's line, collided with the schooner St. Lawrence in the river near Alexandria Bay. The barge sustained serious injury and leaked so rapidly that it was deemed a matter of necessity to beach her, and she now lies sunk in shallow water, her cargo of 8,000 bushels of wheat wet and damaged. The vessel was also injured, but not to a great extent.
