MARINE DISASTER. - We learn from Captain Titus, of the steamer BUFFALO, that the propeller GOLIATH, bound down with a cargo of 9,000 bushels of wheat and 1,000 barrels of flour, sprung a leak on Tuesday night last, between Cleveland and Sandusky. The flour was immediately thrown overboard and Captain Easterbrook, finding that the leak was gaining on them at every heavy sea she encountered, headed her towards Black River and ran her ashore on the rocks near the point where the Brig EMIGRANT was lost. The GOLIATH is owned by Truesdale Co., of Detroit, and we understand both vessel and cargo are insured in the Western Insurance Company. - Buffalo Commercial.
