We regret to learn that the Steamer Niagara has met with an accident which will probably detain her in port for some time. A part of the machinery called the cross-head is broken.
The Steam Boat Pioneer, in coming up from the Falls of Niagara on Tuesday week, about 8 P.M. ran on an ice breaker opposite the ferry at Black Rock, and sunk in a few minutes, in ten feet water. The whole of the passengers were saved. The Pioneer has since been raised. [Buffalo paper]
Wreck - The schr. Dauntless, Capt. Arquet, of Kettle Creek, U.C. was upset in a squall off Erie, about sundown last evening, and immediately filled. There were twelve persons on board, who were saved by the humane and spirited exertions of Capt. Wright and crew, of the steamboat Wm. Penn. Capt. W. was so near at the moment as to witness the accident, but for which fortunate circumstance the people must all have been lost, as there was a high sea, and the wreck disappeared before the boat which took them up had reached the Penn. The Dauntless was owned by Messrs. Warren & Hamilton, of Kettle Creek, was a light vessel, only 40 tons burden, and had no cargo save 19 barrels of potash. The captain, passengers and crew lost all their clothes and other effects including several hundred dollars in specie. [Buffalo paper]
