p.3 Steam Boat - Yesterday afternoon, the Steam Boat left Mr. Kirby's Wharf for the Dock at Point Frederick. We are sorry to hear, that through some accident, the machinery of one of the wheels has been considerably damaged; notwithstanding which, however, she moved with majestic grandeur against a strong head wind. We understand she has gone to the Dock Yard, it being a more convenient place, for putting in a suction pipe.
