ACCIDENT TO THE STEAMER BANSHEE.---We learn that on Saturday evening the steamer BANSHEE struck on the rocks in the Lachine Rapids; and had to be run ashore
on Nun Island. Mr. McGillivary, the mail conductor, and three men took the mail in a
jolly boat to Montreal, they were nearly lost between the piers of the Victoria Bridge.
They, however, fortunately escaped.
