Serious Collision On the Lake - Last night about 10:30 o'clock a collision occurred off Four Mile Point between the schooners Hercules and Medbery (sic - Medbury), by which the former lost her stem and the latter was stove in and sunk. Yesterday afternoon the Hercules sailed for Hamilton with railroad iron. Finding the weather unfavourable for satisfactory headway, she had "come about," and was returning to this port when she sighted the Medbery, salt laden for Chicago. Both displayed lights but the masters of neither had the least conception they were so near until the vessels struck violently, and the extent of the damage incurred wat at once apparent. The Hercules is insured here; the Medbery in Cleveland.
