      . . . . .

      We learn by a letter to the Secretary of the BLU, from Port Colborne, that the Canadian schr. ANTELOPE, in going into that harbor on the 7th, let go her anchor and ran onto it, staving a hole through her bottom. She sunk near the lock on the west side. She does not interfere with the passage of vessels. She had a cargo of staves.
