TRAVELLER Steamer, broke machinery and was towed into Chicago, Lake Michigan. Property loss $300.
      Buffalo Democracy
      Feb. 28, 1855 (casualty list)

      . . . . .

The steamer TRAVELLER, which left yesterday morning with a large load of passengers and freight for Milwaukee, when about three miles out, broke her shaft, and was obliged to come to anchor. The steamer PACIFIC started to her
assistance, in less than an hour after the accident happened, and towed the disabled boat back to this port. The TRAVELLER will probably make no more trip this season. -------- Chicago Tribune
