Steam Boat Accidents.--We learn that the steam boat William Penn, Capt. Wight, run [sic] aground, in a blow about a week since, somewhere between Erie and Cleveland. She was, however, got off again with but trifling injury.
We understand, that two or three nights since, the steam boats Pioneer and Niagara, owing to the darkness of the night, ran foul of each other, near the Grand River; that both boats were considerably injured, but the Pioneer the most seriously; that a lady on board the Pioneer, had a limb broken, and a gentleman his hand severely crushed.
