SCHOONER SUNK. - On Wednesday afternoon, about one o'clock, and during the height of the gale of wind, the tug LADY FRANKLIN came into collision with the schooner AUSTRALIA, which was lying in the bay, off Church Street wharf, Toronto, and striking her on the port quarter, cut her to the water's edge. The vessel, which had on board 6,000 bushels of barley, immediately began to fill, and was towed into the wharf, sinking as soon as she got alongside. About half her cargo was saved.
