Canal Boat Disasters.

- The Vermont Aurora of Thursday week, printed at Vergennes, gives the following melancholy intelligence: " On Wednesday, last week, the canal boat Troy of Westport, N.Y., JACOB HALSTED, master, loaded with iron ore, was sunk opposite Cole's Bay; all hands on board perished, viz: JACOB HALSTED and GEORGE HALSTED (brothers,) LUCIUS PARDY, DANIEL CANNON, and JOHN WILLIAMS. The boat was seen by two persons on shore at Westport, a few minutes before she went down; one of whom, as we are informed, anticipating she was in distress, contemplated going in a gondola to assist the crew, but the other, devoid of every human feeling, refusing to lend any assistance, they resumed the business in which they were employed! In a few minutes afterwards they looked upon the lake and the boat was not to be seen! The captain's hat, trunk, and pocketbook, and several articles attached to the boat, have been picked up, but none of the bodies have been found."

- The canal boat Champlain, owned and sailed by MR. DAGGETT of Charlotte, was sunk in the lake, near Ticonderoga, on the 10th ult. Crew saved by the small boat. She was heavily loaded with goods, principally owned by MESSRS. E. & E. J. SUTTON, VILLRE LAWRENCE, and B. & G. SPENCE, of Vergennes, and MR. LOVELY, of Hinesburg. She was raised the next day and towed to this place; 800 or 1000 bushels of salt, and a quantity of other property, amounting in the whole to four or five thousand dollars, was destroyed.
