Full Text

We regret that the PIONEER has broken her main shaft, which will compel her to lay by (probably 8 or 10 days,) until it can be replaced by one from Pittsburgh. This accident is much regretted, as travelers to the west were greatly accommodated by the trips of the PIONEER.

The Steamboat PIONEER which plies between Buffalo and Dunkirk, on her passage down on the 27th.ult.,broke some of her machinery, which will probably detain her two or three weeks, as the owners will have to send to Pittsburgh for a new shaft
