Full Text

We learn by a passenger that the stm. GEN. SCOTT, that this new craft struck a sunken rock a short distance above Davis's tavern, about 12 miles from this city, yesterday, and took water so fast that it was deemed necessary to run her ashore, which was done without sustaining any material injury. Our informant stated that prompt measures were taken to have her afloat again, and it is likely it will be accomplished today. (2-1)
