CANAL BOATS SUNK.
About 9:25 o'clock last evening the steambarge H. C. SCHNOOR rounded the curve in the river neat the canal slip and ran into two canal boats, sinking them to the bottom. They are the ROBERT HAY, owned by William Burns, and the S. COVE, the property of A. H. McAdler. The horses and effects on board were saved, but about $600 damage is supposed to have been sustained. The barge was sailing quite rapidly and could not be stopped in time to avert the collision.

The captain of the H. C. SCHNOOR has come to the conclusion to pay the damages done to the canal boats ROBERT HAY and S. COVE by the collision Thursday night. This will amount to about $600. They will be towed up to the weighlock and there appraised.
