      COLLIDED. - A collision took place Thursday night a short distance this side of Malden, between the tug DOBBINS, bound up with no tow, and the bark MONITOR, which was bound down in tow of the tug DISPATCH and directly astern of another vessel. The former sustained serious damage to her bow, while the latter it was presumed was uninjured, as she proceeded on her voyage. Capt. Hackett, of the DOBBINS, informs us that he had the usual lights brilliantly set on his boat, but that was not the case on board the bark, and furthermore that she was not following in the track of the tug which had her in tow. As this is not a matter for us to decide we will simply let it rest "where it is." - Detroit Free Press.
