From the Brockville Recorder, Sept. 25

STEAMBOATS.--The present seems to be the period of misfortune to the Lake and River navigation, as we think will be readily granted when we inform our readers, that the Steamboat Queenston on her trip upwards, last week, is said to have ran down the Kingston Packet. Whether the blame is to be attached to the Queenston or the Packet, we have not learned. The encounter, however, has not prevented the Queenston making her usual trips.

On Tuesday morning last, the steamboat Canada, which runs between York and Niagara, whilst clearing the Niagara river, came in contact with the American boat Martha Ogden, which was materially damaged, she having been near sinking.

The steamboat Toronto, is stated to have burst her steam conductor, which has prevented her accomplishing her usual trips down the river.
