p.2 Steamboat Collision - We have been informed that the steamers Prince Albert and Pioneer came in collision one day last week, some distance above the Ferry, on the Rideau Lake. The Pioneer had one of her paddle-boxs, paddle-wheel, and aft bulwarks carried away, and was otherwise seriously damaged. The Prince Albert did not sustain any material damage. The accident is said to have been caused by the Pioneer being on the wrong side of the channel, and when attempting to cross to the right side was struck by the Prince Albert.

The Steamer Princess Royal will leave for Toronto and Hamilton (calling at intermediate ports) This Afternoon, at 3 o'clock.

The Steamer LORD ELGIN will leave for Montreal, calling at intermediate ports, Tomorrow morning at half-past 5 o'clock.
