STEAMBOAT ACCIDENT.--The Steamboat CONSTELLATION, on her upward trip met with an accident, near Point Do Chien, which compelled her return. Some part of her machinery gave way, by which the top of her cylinder was broken, the piston rod bent, and other minor injury done. No person was injured. She was towed down Friday evening, by the HURON. It will take several days to repair her. - Detroit Advertiser.
