Steam-boat Accident.--On Saturday night last, the Steam-boat PIONEER, on her way to Dunkirk, when about ten miles from this port, broke the pitman of her engine while under way. The piston being thus released from its load, rushed into the cylinder with such force as to break into pieces one of its heads - which rendered a return to port necessary. No person was injured and the boat has since resumed her trips. - Buffalo Journal, June 23
