p.3 Collision - This morning while the schooners Ellsworth and E.R. Williams were coming down the channel between Snake Island and Four Mile Point, they collided. The Ellsworth lost her main mizen boom, had her mizen torn, besides breaking her mizen boom and the lanyards in her rigging. The Williams had her mizen rigging damaged and her square sail badly torn. The captain of each vessel blames the other, and it is a matter of difficulty to know which is in fault. The matter will be referred to arbitration.

Yachting - The yacht Zephyr, from Belleville, with S.T. Greene, S. Brown, S.S. Wallbridge and W. German, arrived here this afternoon on her way to Alexandria Bay, for a two weeks' cruise.
