The Buffalo Commercial Advertiser, in giving an account of the recent collision between the QUEEN CITY and ST. LAWRENCE, says the latter boat "filled to the bulkhead, which resisted the action of the water. The benefit of the bulkhead in this case was strikingly shown. Had the boat been built in any other manner she must have filled at once, and have sunk. This is an important consideration for passengers. The Sandusky boats are divided inot perfectly water tight compartments, and if cut open below the water, will only fill to a certain extent, and cannot be sunk. No boat should in future be built in any other manner.
