ACCIDENT TO THE STEAMER BRUCE. - We understand that on her way up the Lake on Saturday the BRUCE broke one of her shafts. After stopping at Kincardine to repair she contrived to reach Saugeen with one wheel. She is expected down today.

she was wrecked recently, as well as the anchor they had the heavy chain belonging to it, and without which they must surely have perished. Extract
