Description
Full Text

ACCIDENT TO THE " FRANKLIN." - The steamer FRANKLIN met with a serious accident, near Toledo, on Tuesday morning. As she was going up the river, the trunk of a large sycamore tree passed up into one of her wheels, and partly between two state rooms, through the upper deck. The state rooms were occupied at the time, and strange as it seems, none of the inmates were injured. A portion of their clothes, however, were carried through the upper deck. The tree was about sixty feet in length, and had to be cut off several times before it was extricated.
