Description
Full Text

We learn from Capt. Van Allen, that the stm. CLIFTON on her yesterday's trip from Chippewas, met with a slight accident, owing to an imperfection in one of her boilers, in which the end sheet connecting with the shell in the top at the back of the boiler gave way some 3 or 4 inches, producing an opening of 1/2 to 1/4 of an inch. Great alarm prevailed, but no injury occurred, more than a slight scald by the steam on one of the firemen.
The boat will be ready to resume her trip tomorrow.
