BOAT SUNK. -- The Rome Sentinel says, the boat GIFFORD MORGAN sunk with a cargo of 2,500 bushels of corn about three miles above that place on Sunday morning last. Through the exertions of Capt. Conley, of the State Scow, the boat was towed down to Jacobs & Co's. staorhouse, where it was unloaded. The cargo was insured, but in what company, or for what amount, we have not learned.
