p.2 A Diabolical Act - The Intelligencer says - Previous to the steamer City of the Bay, leaving the wharf at Kingston, on the 28th instant, some wretch effected an entrance to the steamer's engine, and took the valves from the force pumps (which feed the boiler) away, thus rendering the boat liable to be blown to atoms at any moment, and every soul sacrificed. It is difficult to believe that such fiends exist, who would thus wantonly attempt to destroy the lives of their fellow-men, and render useless an immense amount of property, for apparently, nothing less than revenge. Mr. Henry Corby, on the part of the owners of the boat, have offered a reward of 250 pounds, for the discovery of the parties implicated in this most atrocious act. We trust they must be brought to justice.
