Collision - Yesterday the schooner St. James, while being towed out of the river, and the schooner Thomas Kingsford, while being towed in, collided. The St. James lost her bowsprit, taffrail and cutwater, and was otherwise damaged to the amount of about $200. The Thomas Kingsford was damaged in her rigging to some extent. The St. James was obliged to return for repairs. [Chicago Press, 31st]

R.J. Stubbs, master, Thomas Ledden, first mate, and Charles Blue, second mate of the barque E.C.L., were yesterday arrested upon a warrant sworn out by Henry Marcano, seaman, charging them with committing an assault and battery upon him while off the port of Racine, Wisconsin. Marcano also made a second charge against Captain Stubbs for shipping seamen without the shipping papers required by law. The accused were brought before U.S. Commissioner Hoyne, who continued the hearing. [Chicago Journal, 30th]

Another Landmark Disappearing - The old Fort Dearborn Lighthouse, standing a little west of Rush Street bridge, and near to the site of old Fort Dearborn, has finally been compelled to yield to the progressive spirit of our people, and workmen are now engaged in pulling it down. This was about the only relic of early Chicago which has been allowed to remain to this time. The old Lighthouse has not been used since the erection of the new iron one at the end of the pier. The river at this point, we hear, is to be straightened, a necessity for which everybody will willingly acknowledge. [Chicago Press, 31st]
