We regret to learn that the steamer GEORGE MOFFAT, which left this port last Saturday morning, met with an accident while decending the Long Sault rapids and immediately sank. Particulars of the disaster have not yet come to hand. She was laden with flour destined for Montreal, principally on account of merchants here, whom we are glad to learn are fully covered by insurance. - Toronto Leader
