p.3 Accident To The Steamer Kingston - The Royal Mail steamer Kingston, which left this port on Saturday morning for Montreal, met with an unfortunate accident, while passing down the Cedar Rapids, by striking on the Split Rock, making a large hole in her bottom. She proceeded for a good distance before the leak was discovered, and had got as far as the foot of the Beauharnois Canal before she sank, she now lies sunk to her guards, her water tight compartments keeping her from sinking further. She has a good load of freight on board. The passengers were all got off without accident. The line has now only four steamers, the Kingston and Passport being off, but it is expected that the latter boat will be ready to take her place shortly. In consequence of the accident, there will be no steamer for Toronto this afternoon.
