Full Text

STEAMBOAT "MADISON" ---The only accident----according to our memory----that ever happened to this boat, so as to prevent her from performing her regular trips, during a commission of some five or six years, happened to her soon after leaving Chicago, on her last downward trip, by breaking her piston rod, forcing pump &c. There was no damage to life or property on board. She was towed back into port, and her passengers transferred to the MISSOURI---The BOSTON, taking her freight.
