SCHOONER SUNK IN CLEVELAND HARBOR. -- The schooner CERES, loaded with 140 tons of railroad iron for the Ohio & Indiana Railroad, was sunk in the Cuyahoga last Saturday by being snagged upon one of the piles of the new bridge. She lies above the proposed bridge in about 10 feet of water. A strong force is engaged in unloading her, and when their work is completed she will no doubt be easily raised. The CERES is owned in Buffalo. She is a new vessel, launched last spring.
