p.2 The Late Steamboat Collision - The Prescott Messenger in reprinting the account from the News of the late collision between the steamer Empress and Passport, appends the following remarks of its own:- "Our readers may remember that in our paper of the 10th of June, we spoke of the Champion being nearly 'run down' by a steamer coming east, while she was on her previous westward trip - the writer being on board at the time. Well, it was just about the same place, and this same Empress, which then was only prevented from colliding by the watchfulness and prompt action of Capt. Kelly. We think the steamboat people should look into this matter, as putting both the facts together, it would seem to argue something worse than carelessness on the part of those having charge of the Empress."
