A locomotive in the Canal. --About 12 o'clock yesterday, the engine "Washington," while proceeding up the steep grade on Eighth street to Broad, became unmanageable after getting a short distance beyond Main street, and came dashing back towards the canal at a speed. The draw to the bridge being up, the locomotive struck against it and broke it in two; but the resistance caused by the collision somewhat impeded its speed, and only fore-wheels of the engine ran off the the water, the rest remaining on the track. At time of the occurrence, Engineer Nunnally Train master Curry and two negroes were on board, but they sprang to the ground as soon as it was found impossible to stop the engine. Messrs. Nunnally and Curry were considerably bruised in consequence of jumping from the car.
