Arrival of the Kingsford

The steamer Thomson Kingsford, which ran aground on Featherbed shoals at 12 o'clock Wednesday night on her up trip was released by the tug Watertown of Kingston at 6 P.M. yesterday, uninjured and with but little difficulty. There was an inexperienced man at the wheel at the time of the accident and the boat which was running at the rate of about ten miles an hour, was two feet out at the bow when she was brought to a standstill. Mr. Mattoon offered to feed and accommodate the passengers aboard for Oswego, about 15 in number, or to send them on by another steamer, but they preferred to remain aboard and did so., The Kingston's valves will be enlarged and other work will be done, which will keep her in port until Monday or Tuesday, when she will resume her regular trips.
