COLLISION.---About 10 o'clock on Friday night, as the steamer SARATOGA was
nearing this port, she came in contact with the Canadian schooner GEORGIANA.
The schooner struck the SARATOGA just forward of her starboard wheelhouse,
doing but very little damage to the boat; but the schooner had her bowsprit and
one mast carried away. She was taken in tow by the steamer, and brought back
to port. The collision was sheer carelessness on the part of the officers of the
