STEAMER OLEAN SUNK. - The Erie Railroad Company's steamer OLEAN, loaded, sunk Saturday forenoon about 10 o'clock, in the harbor at Dunkirk. She struck rock coming into the harbor, and filled so fast that she sunk when about 10 rods from the dock. The Eatna Insurance Co. sent up their steam pump by railroad the same forenoon to assist in raising her.
