THE SCHOONER DEAN RICHMOND - This schooner, bound from Chicago to Liverpool direct with a cargo of wheat, arrived at this port on Sunday morning last (27th), and left this afternoon. We learn that she, with another boat, was towed down the St. Clair Flats by the tug JULIUS D. MORTON, and that the tug LION was towing up three vessel: several of the vessels collided, causing some outside damage to the bows of the DEAN RICHMOND, and somewhat disfiguring one or two other vessels. The DEAN RICHMOND presented a fine appearance, bearing the international colors, and we are happy to learn that no delay was caused by the slight accident she met with.
