      From Mr. Bissell, of the St. Clair Republican, we learn that the ferry boat MILTON COURTRIGHT was burned Tuesday night, at St. Clair. The boat was lying at Agen's dock, shortly after midnight, having been engaged in towing on Pine River, when the fire broke out. She was cut loose and floated down stream, where she soon after sank, and is supposed to be a total loss. The COURTRIGHT was owned by Mr. Charles Sheldon. The city of St. Clair still has one ferry boat left - the MESSENGER. The COURTRIGHT was about the size of the PRIDGEON.
