Full Text

STEAMBOAT ACCIDENT. -- We learn that the steamer KENT met with an accident on her downward trip on Thursday, which will probably lay her up for the season. She broke her shaft, and the engineer not being in a situation to stop the working of the engine, the piston-rod was forced down through the machinery, which was materially injured. The passengers were brought on by the HURON, and the boat was towed into a Canadian port.
