ACCIDENT TO THE SCHOONER " WATTS SHERMAN."---- The schooner WATTS SHERMAN, a Cleveland vessel, Capt. E.M. Harrington, while entering Port Burwell, Canada, on Thursday of last week, ran upon her anchor, making a hole in her hull. She soon filled, and remains now in Port Burwell harbor, about half full of water. She was not loaded, and is probably but little injured. Her captain was in town this morning, but goes to Port Burwell tonight to have his vessel raised, and the necessary repairs made.-------Cleveland herald
