Tho Cincinnati Cwnmereiul says of the
collision of the Bonanza and Ihompson:
"The steamers Bonanza and V. P.
Thompson collided a short distance be
low MuryriJle last night. The bulkhead
of the Bonanza was badly broken, and
the handsomecralt was otherwise Injured,
but repairs were at once made, winch
euableu her to proceed to Cincinnati at
about noon to-day. I he 1 uompson was
much worse hurt, and sank in shallow
water. All her freight has been
landed on the Ohio shore
and the Champion has been sent for to
assist in raising her. Captain Knowles,
of the Thompson, says that he was In bed
at ttio time ot the accident, and was un
able to state any ol the particulars. Cap
tain D.wiu Williamson, the pilot, states
that the collision occurred 3:10 a. m. Tho
Thompson was going up and the Bo
nanza tlown. When about one and a
half miles below Mays ville the Thompson
blew two whistles for the larboard side,
and the Bonanza answered all right. At
this time the boats were about 700 yards
apart. When they were about 100 yards
apart the Bonanza whistled once, but it
was then too late for the pilot ot the
Thompson, ns he says, to change the
course ot that boat, so he did not answer
the whistle, but tried to stop the boat
and shipped up for backing. The
Thompson had been going at full speed
until that time, and could not have been
stopped in less than a hundred yards.
The liononza came on, running across
the Thompson's bow almost at right an
gles, nntil tho collision took place."
