St. Louis (Steamboat), broke machinery, 1 Jun 1845

Full Text

The stmr. St. LOUIS met with an accident on her last trip to the upper lakes; having broken her crosshead. She was towed into Presque Isle by the HERCULES, which vessel brought her crosshead to Detroit. The engineer of the St. LOUIS is now here, and will probably return by the stmr. CLEVELAND, with the crosshead of the WEBSTER, that the St. LOUIS may be enabled to return to this port.

      The St. LOUIS returned yesterday morning from Presque Isle, and will resume her station immediately, the damage being repaired. She leaves for Chicago Friday evening.
