      THE LUCY J. LATHAM SUNK. - The schooner LUCY J. LATHAM, loaded with barley for Oswego, collided with the schooner BROOKLYN near Port Colborne and sunk in the Welland Canal Saturday. The tug BRYANT and steam pumps were sent from here to her assistance, but on arrival there it was found that her decks were bursted so badly that pumping would not free her, and the expedition returned to Buffalo.
