BOAT SUNK. - A canal boat containing a cargo of 3,000 bushels of wheat, sunk in the Erie Canal near Spencerport, on Sunday. The Rochester Union says the wheat is the property of L.H. Pratt & Co., of Buffalo, and was consigned to Burbank & Co., of this city, for grinding. About three-fourths of the cargo was submerged. Fully insured. The boat has been got out of the channel so as to permit boats to pass.
