Steamboat Accident - The steamer Chief Justice Robinson met with a serious accident yesterday afternoon about five o'clock, when about 8 or 10 miles from this city. The piston head broke so that she was unable to proceed, till the City of Hamilton went out to her assistance and towed her into the harbor, which she did not reach till 11 o'clock. A boat put off when the accident happened, but passed the City on her way out, being unable to attract her attention. The first intelligence of the accident was given by Mr. Privat, who saw the signal of distress hoisted by the Chief. [Toronto Patriot]
