Frontenac (Steamboat), collision, 22 Jun 1822

Full Text

On Sunday morning the steam boat FRONTENAC returned to this port, having in tow the schooner LADY MAITLAND, Capt. Mosier. It appears that the above vessels accidently ran foul of each other on Saturday night, when distant from this port about 15 miles. They were sailing at a rate of 5 or 6 miles an hour in the opposite directions, and the stem of the FRONTENAC struck the larboard bow of the schooner with such violence, that the latter immediately filled and sank to the waters edge -- fortunately no lives were lost. The LADY MAITLAND's cargo consisted of 300 barrels of flour, is of course all damaged, and the hull of the vessel seriously injured.- Kingston Herald, June 25
