Full Text

BOAT SUNK. --- The Rochester Union, of Monday, says -- "The canal boat GEORGE
MONTEITH, of the Clinton Line, sprung a leak on Saturday night, and sunk, on Sunday, near Stone Bridge, 23 miles west of this city. The boat is laden with 5,000 bushels of oats,and some lignum vitae. The former are damaged. The sunken boat obstructed navigation about three hours only, when she was hauled to the heel-path, so that a channel was open. The MONTEITH was owned by William Monteith, Esq.,of Buffalo. The cargo was shipped on contract for owners, and is doubtless insured."
