Another Lake Accident.--On Tuesday night last, the Schooner Henry, of Oswego, and the Steamboat Gov. Marcy, came in contact about halfway between this place and Erie. The boat struck the schooner on her larboard bow, which carried away the bulwarks, &c. and otherwise considerably injured the schooner. The wind blowing pretty fresh, they were enabled to keep the schooner from sinking, by tacking about, and going on her larboard tack, until she arrived at our harbour, when in rounding the pier, she righted, filled with water, and went down in about 12 or 14 feet of water.--Com. Gaz.


Steamboat Wm. F. Porter Taylor, Capt. Chas. Myrick.--This is the name of a new boat built at Silver Creek, and owned by Oliver Lee, of that place, and Pratt, Taylor & Co. of Buffalo. The Taylor is 145 tons burthen, propelled by a high pressure engine of 45 horse power, with 3 boilers, from the Foundry of Messrs. Culver & Dickinson of this village; it is a piece of workmanship that would do credit to the more extensive establishments of our eastern and western cities. The Taylor is a neat model, finished in the most modern style. She is intended for a regular boat between Dunkirk, Silver Creek and Buffalo. She sails to-morrow for Buffalo, where she is to be furnished, and will commence her regular trips in a few days.--Dunkirk Beacon.
