ACCIDENT TO STEAMER MISSISSIPPI. - The steamer MISSISSIPPI which
left this port last evening for Sandusky, when off Silver Creek, collapsed one of
her flues, instantly killing Richard Long, a coal heaver, and badly scalding two
firemen. The accident was caused by a defect in riviting the flue, and it will take
a day or two to repair the damage. The MISSISSIPPI was towed into port by
the St. LAWRENCE.
