Steamboat Casualties. The number of steamboat accidents, during the present season, has been almost unparalleled -- from what causes we are unable to determined. The following is the most complete list of losses and damages, that we have been able to procure:
The Columbus- near the mouth of the Ohio: boat and cargo entirely lost. The Illinois -- between the mouth of the Ohio and St. Louis: boat and cargo entirely lost. The Pilot -- in the Mississippi, above the mouth of the Ohio. The Montezuma -- a few miles below Helena: boat and a greater part of the cargo, entirely lost. -- The Decatur -- entirely lost. The Muskigum -- lost on Red River. The Natchez at the mouth of False River. The Belle Creole -- entirely lost. The Hercules run down by a brig below New Orleans, and entirely lost. The General Carrol -- recently ran in contact with the Diana, and sunk in fifteen minutes;___ hundred miles below Louisville: boat and cargo entirely lost. The catalogue of partial losses, is too extensive for detailed account. Some of the most serious are, the Talma, Hilerna, Patriot, Brandywine, Florida. The Talma was discovered to be on fire, with one hundred and fifty kegs of powder on board of her. She was scuttled and sunk before the flames reached it. Since raised. Natchez Ariel.
