Description
Full Text

The stmr. INTERNATIONAL, while crossing the river yesterday, in some way broke her rudder chain, and became unmanageable. The boat got swept by the powerful current down the river to the Great Western Dock, on the Canada side. One of the wheels was damaged by the ice. In the afternoon the boat was towed back to the American side, and repairs will be made which will take about 10 days.
