. . . . .
SUNK. - On Saturday morning, about 3 o'clock, while the new schooner DOMINION, laden with 11,500 bushels of peas for Oswego, lay at anchor in the Canal, the propeller DROMEDARY collided with and sunk her, damaging her badly, amidships, at the point of contact. Her cargo was considerably damaged by water, yet portions of it may be saved. A canvas was placed over the hole, and by the free use of pumps she was successfully floated to Brown's Wharf. The freight and vessel were insured in the Montreal Marine Insurance Co. - Hamilton Times.
