President (Steamboat), aground, 21 Aug 1844


Description
Full Text

The PRESIDENT, a small steamboat plying between this port and Sackett's Harbor, struck yesterday on some rocks, near the head of Long Island and immediately filled. A part of her machinery, and all her freight, with the exception of some barrels of potash, were got out and put on the JOHN MARSHALL. The heavy sea running today will doubtless complete her destruction.
