p.2 Sad Accident to the Steamer Kingston - Yesterday morning, about 3 o'clock, the Kingston on her passage up the Bay of Quinte, encountered a quantity of ice near the mouth of the Moira, at Belleville. The ice speedily cut a passage for the water into one of the false sides, that were appended to the vessel shortly after her launch, which being soon filled, caused her to fall over on one side, and in spite of the strenuous exertions of Capt. Ives and the ship's crew, she sunk in about 12 feet of water. The passengers and a number of horses and cattle were saved, and the goods on board were not much damaged. The accident occurred within a short distance of the shore.
Capt. Ives immediately returned to Kingston, and has left again in the schooner Kingston with men and apparatus to raise the steam-boat.
In consequence of the malicious endeavors of certain individuals at Port Hope, a meeting of the Stockholders of the Steam-boat St. George took place this day, at which a series of resolutions highly favorable to Capt. Harper were passed, which shall appear on Tuesday next..
