CANAL BOAT SUNK. --- The propeller OGONTZ, in coming up the creek yesterday
morning, when about opposite the foot of Commercial Street, ran into the Canal boat UNDINE, loaded with corn. The propeller struck the boat amidships, with such force as to carry her some distance up the creek. She filled rapidly, and sank opposite J.D. Deshler's warehouse, close to the dock. The UNDINE is owned by Elmore Walker, at Niles & Wheeler's, and is a new boat. Captain Gager, with his steam pump, got to work during the afternoon and pumped the boat out, when the corn was taken out and placed in another boat.
