A COAL BARGE GOES DOWN.
      Rochester, Aug. 14. - During a gale off Charlotte the LAURA, a coal barge hailing from Oswego and loaded with coal for Toronto, went down 25 miles from shore. Captain Malcomson and his crew of five men and a stewardess took to the yawl five minutes before the boat sunk. They used a coat spread on an oar as a sail and made Charlott in an exhausted condition.
