Lexington (Steamboat), collision, 23 Apr 1842


Description
Full Text

THE VANDALIA, a new species of water craft, appeared in our port on Saturday last. She carries a fore mast, square rigged assisted by one of Erricson's propellers, the wheels of which play under water each side of her rudder.- She attracted much attention from our citizens, some calling it a splendid improvement and others doubting its ability. Experience will decide the question. She had a collision with the steamboat LEXINGTON upon leaving port, which carried away her jib-boom. The LEXINGTON also recieved considerable injury.
