STEAMER NASZNA SUNK.
Ogdensburg, April 20. - The steamer NASZNA, Captain Frank Dana, plying between this place and Alexandria Bay, sank near the mainland about seven miles up the St. Lawrence river from Ogdensburg. She was bound for the Thousand Islands with an all deck load, 15 tons of plaster and 8,000 feet of lumber for the New York Casino. A 50-mile an hour northwest gale was blowing and the steamer was obliged to run broadside to the wind for some distance. The windows in the bulwarks were crushed in by the swells and her cargo shifted.
