CANAL BOAT SUNK. - The Rochester Union says: "The line boat G.S. CHAMBERLAIN
of Rochester, ran upon a raft about 11 o'clock last night, about five miles east of this city, and soon after sunk. She was laden with pork, hams, lard. &c., which will be slightly damaged. The boat took in her cargo at Buffalo, and was bound to Albany. The State hands are now engaged in removing the cargo, and getting the channel clear so as to permit the passage of boats."
