Description
Full Text

On Sunday morning the 27th ult. we are informed that the steam boat while passing the bar, in entering the harbor at Erie, Pennsylvania was approached by a boat from one of our public vessels, with the intention of boarding the steam boat. The men in the boat were cautioned against attempting to come aboard, but not withstanding the boat came up forward of the water wheel and was instantly drawn under it; the steam boat was stopped in order to save the lives of those in the boat and while this was being effected, she drifted on the bar, remaining there about 2 days efore she got into the harbor. We learn the only injury she sustained was the breaking of one of her rudder irons.
      The steam boat pursued her course up the lake, and may be expected here in season for her regular trip.
