Full Text

CANAL BOAT INJURED. - The Troy Times says: "The canal boat DICTATOR, loaded
with oats, from Buffalo, for Moore and Derrick of this city, sun in the Erie Canal between Locks 3 and 4, above the weigh lock, on Sunday morning. The cause was on account of trying to take the middle lock, in boatman's parlance. Which means run against the pier between the locks. The cargo was partially transferred to another boat and the DICTATOR towed to the dry dock for repair.
