Another Steam-boat Accident.--A lette from Niagara, dated the 6th inst. informs us, that the new steam-boat Niagara, Capt. Mosier, while on her way up from Prescott, run on a rock in Lake Ontario, near Long Point. The steam-boat Queenston, Capt. Whiting, on passing down, sent small boats and took off the passengers, but the Queenston could not approach near enough to take out the valuable cargo of merchandize that was on board the Niagara. We have not learnt whether it was expected the boat would be got off.
