... The schooner Millard Fillmore, when off Sheboygan, about 3 o'clock yesterday morning, was struck on the port bow by a white vessel bound down, name unknown. They were both together about an hour before they could be disengaged. captain. Knight, of the Fillmore, asked the name of the vessel which ran into her, but received no answer. The Fillmore had her jib-boom broken, pail-post split, stern wrenched, and was otherwise damaged.

During the blockade of the Harbour yesterday, the schooner Wm. Jones, while being tugged into the river, ran afoul of the steamer Water Witch, crushing in her smoke stack and cracking and otherwise severely injuring her walking beam. The schooner's bowsprit was broken.

The bark Northwest, bound down from this port, was the first vessel, this season, to pass through the Straits. She passed Detroit on Wednesday.

We learn that a large raft was grounded on Thursday, on Thurston Island, River St. Clair, while in tow of the tug Alliance, which when last heard from, was yet hard on.
