BARGE SUNK BY COLLISION.
While leaving Buffalo harbor last evening the barge G. K. JACKSON collided with the steamer CITY OF VENICE and received such damage that she was beached to prevent her sinking in deep water. The JACKSON was in tow of the steamer CHARLES A. EDDY, and had a cargo of coal for Bay City. The VENICE was encountered right at the harbor entrance. The tug ACME hurried the barge toward the beach in time to prevent her from going down in deep water.
