BUFFALO.---The Tug EDWARD FISKE, belonging to the Hand line, sprung a leak today while lying at her dock, foot of Main Street, and sunk. No. 12 Fire Engine made an attempt to save her from sinking but failed. She now lies at the bottom of the river. Arrangements are being made to raise her. The FISKE was employed in breaking the ice in the Creek, and it is believed she either started a butt, or was cut through, causing the leak.
