p.3 Serious Accident - On Sunday morning the Steam Boat Frontenac returned to this Port, having in tow the Schooner Lady Maitland, Capt. Mosier. It appears that the above vessels accidentally ran foul of each other on Saturday night, when distant from this place about 15 miles. They were going at the rate of 5 or 6 miles an hour, in opposite directions, and the stern of the Frontenac struck the larboard bow of the Schooner with such violence, that the latter immediately filled and sunk to the water's edge. Fortunately no lives were lost. - The Lady Maitland's cargo, consisting of 800 barrels of Flour, is of course all damaged, and the hull of the vessel seriously injured.
