CANAL BOAT SUNK - Early yesterday morning the canal boat Wm. M. FANILL, with a cargo of Delhi Wheat, for New York, sunk very suddenly and unexpectedly near the west end of the Big Bridge, Lockport. The cause of the accident is supposed to have been occasioned by the boat's side coming in contact with some of the rocky projections a short distance above the point where the boat struck. Efforts will be commenced at once to get her off.
