Full Text

BEE Horse Ferry Boat, which plies between Black Rock and the Canada shore, sunk yesterday, while a few rods from the shore. The accident arose from the boat being overloaded, having 160 sheep on board, of which over 100 were lost. The boat partly submerged drifted down the Niagara River about a mile, when she grounded on a flat, and the passengers and a horse were taken off in a most exhausted state.
