JAPAN Schooner, collided with the Schooner GRENADA, in the Straits of Mackinac.
      Buffalo Commercial Advertiser

COLLISION IN THE STRAITS.--We have just learned of a collision which took place during the early part of the week in Mackinac Straits, between the schooner GRENADA, bound up, and the JAPAN, bound down, grain loaded. The latter vessel's damages are considerable, including the loss of her headgear, rail, bulwarks and several stanchions forward. She was enabled to reach the St. Clair River, where she temporarily repaired. The former vessel's damages were not ascertained. It is presumed, however, that they were not serious.
