ACCIDENT TO THE "VERMILLION".---The Steamboat VERMILLION, Capt. Wagstaff, running upon the Upper lakes this season, met with a serious accident a few days since, about 50 miles beyond the Manitoo Islands. Her engine, larboard shaft, starboard crank, pump, pitman and condenser were broken. The larboard wheel and flanges were lost overboard. One man, Mr.Thos.McGroggan, jumped overboard and was drowned. By the aid of sails, the boat reached St. Joseph - cargo safe. The Chicago American says she will be brought to that port to repair damages.
