p.3 Accident - It is with much regret we learn that while the steamer Ontario was on her passage upwards yesterday morning between Dickinson's Landing and Prescott, one of her shafts broke, and one of the Engines in consequence, was materially injured. These shafts, which were manufactured by the Niagara Dock Company, appear to have been difficient from the beginning, the other of them having given way on a former occasion, in a similar manner. In consequence of this unfortunate accident, the Montreal Mail which was due last evening has not yet arrived.
