ANOTHER STEAMBOAT ACCIDENT. -- The steamer SAM WARD, which left Detroit Monday evening for Cleveland, when ten miles below the Islands, met with an accident by the breaking of the strap of her walking beam which completely wrecked her engine. The Detroit Free Press says: "part of her walking beam came down with a crash, and the piston rod walked through the floor and roof of the cabin, crashing everything in its way. In the excitement a steerage passenger jumped overboard and was drowned. The WARD was towed up to the city by the propeller BUFFALO, and lies at Hudson's Dock.
