Dreadful Steam Boat Explosion. - We learn with deepest regret, the Shamrock, one of Messrs. Atkinson, Matthie & Co.'s canal steamers, burst her boiler, on Saturday last, shortly after leaving Lachine. She had on board a great number of passengers, (said to be one hundred and seven) seventy-seven of whom have perished, while many of the survivors are severely scalded. The particulars of this frightful disaster, we have not learned. - Mont. Mess., July 11.
