-The steamer Empress on Saturday night last, when in the Rapids near Montreal, struck a rock in the St. Lambert shoal, and sprang a leak. She succeeded in landing her passengers however, and getting into the Montreal Basin before any further damage was done. Here she sank, but has since been hauled up into drydock for repairs. In consequence of this accident, the Empress will be delayed only one trip. The news reached Kingston on Monday morning.
