p.2 Accident To the Steamer Kingston - The steamer Kingston about five o'clock on Saturday evening struck the "Split Rock" on her way through the Cascades Rapid, but there are no particulars as to the extent of the damage. There was a raft in the way, which was the cause of the accident. After striking, she ran to the lower mouth of the Beauharnois Canal, a distance of 6 miles, so that the damage is supposed not to be very great. She has probably been run ashore. Passengers and baggage all safe. The exact position she is in is not known, but the insurance company's agent has gone to the steamer, and further particulars will probably be gleaned tomorrow. Messrs. Calvin & Breck will send down their pump to raise the steamer immediately.
