SUNK. -- Tuesday night the schooner ATHENIAN, loaded with coal for the Great Western Railroad Company at Windsor, struck the rocks at the Lime Kiln crossing, and sunk in about eight feet of water. The tug HERCULES, with one of Charles Labey's pumps aboard, left to go to her assistance at 4 o'clock yesterday morning. A lighter was also obtained at Malden. Up to a late hour last evening no further news in regard to her position had been received at this port. --- Free Press.
