SUNK IN THE HABOR.
An Unfortunate canalboat.
Another steambarge has sunk a canalboat in the harbor. The latest case is that of the steambarge GEORGE DUNBAR. Coming along the South Branch yesterday afternoon the DUNBAR collided with the canalboat BODENSWARZO inflicting such damage that she sunk. Fortunately the boat was light and the loss is much lighter than in the case of the BUTTERS. The circumstances were also different in the case of the DUNBAR, and the master of the latter does not hold himself responsible for the occurrance. Efforts towards raising the boat will be commenced today.
