SUNK AT CORNWALL.
      Montreal, Aug. 3. - The damage to the steamer PASSPORT, sunk at Montreal, is not so great as first reported, as there is every prospect of getting her off. The Company intend to take action agains the Government for the damage sustained, as the current is so strong and trecherous at the new locks at Cornwall that steamers have great difficulty in getting in there with safety.
