A private dispatch says that the schr. BERLIN, bound own with a cargo of iron ore, sprung a leak Saturday and ran into Fairport Ohio, where she sank. The vessel is owned by A.M. Johnston, of this city, and insured for $4,000. Capt. Merriman has gone from this port to raise her. It is thought she can be got afloat with a steam pump.
