THE STEAMER CLIFTON. - Belonging to the Buffalo and Lake Huron Railway Company, burst one of steam connecting pipes Saturday evening, while coming up the rapids with the passengers of the evening train. The only person injured was the engineer, Mr. Wilson, who was slightly scalded. The boat drifted down the river and grounded just below the ferry. It will require some days to repair the damage.
