Collision Of Two Steamers On The Lake – At an early hour yesterday morning, the steamers Empress and Passport, both belonging to the Royal Mail Line, came into collision on Lake Ontario, some distance above Kingston. A thick fog then prevailed. The Empress was bound for Montreal, and the Passport was on her trip up to Toronto. Yesterday forenoon Messrs. John Brown & Co., Customs House, [received a?] telegram from Hon. J. Hamilton, informing them of the accident, and stating that both steamers had got into Kingston harbor. No lives were lost, and the amount of damage sustained was not mentioned. The Passport’s passengers and freight will arrive by the Champion this morning. - Globe
