p.2 Steamboat Disasters - We learn that on Wednesday the propeller Protection and steamer Boston came in collision near Fiddler's Elbow, between Brockville and Gananoque, and the former sunk in a few minutes in deep water. It is supposed no lives were lost, as the officers and crew of the Boston and Britannia exerted themselves to save all on board the sinking vessel, and there is no reason to believe that any person perished. We have no particulars.
