MORE COLLISIONS. -- The Cleveland Herald of the 12th, states that the steamer BUNKER HILL and the propeller PRINCETON ran into each other near Conneaut. The BUNKER received quite a smash in her guards, &c. Thursday night the steamer SARATOGA and propeller LADY OF THE LAKE came into collision between Cleveland and Buffalo. It is really time says the Herald, the track in Lake Erie was widened, or a surer preventive of collisions would be to have sailing masters of every craft lashed in a chair just in front of the figure head.
