      SUNK. -- The schooner D. NEWHALL, with a cargo of 8,500 bushels of corn from Toledo, says the Express in coming into port yesterday afternoon, broached to at the mouth of the harbor, in consequence of the strong current in the Creek, and ran her nose on the West Pier, which caused her to leak so badly that she sank soon after making fast near the foot of Commercial Street. The cargo was insured in the Toledo occice. We were unable to learn whether the vessel was insured or not.
