Description
Full Text

COLUMBUS Steamboat, and steamboat DANIEL WEBSTER ran foul of each other night before last, on the lake, a short distance from Fairport. The WEBSTER lost her bowsprit, and part of the ladies' cabin of the COLUMBUS was carried away. Whether any lives were lost on board the COLUMBUS, we have not heard. There was however much confusion and screaming on board the boat, and it is feared not without just cause. The COLUMBUS was on her way up, and the DANIEL WEBSTER coming down. Nobody was injured aboard the latter boat. - Buffalo Journal.
