COLLISION. -- The BUCKEYE STATE, when above Long Point, yesterday morning about 2 o'clock, came in collision with the BELLE SHERIDAN, bound to Oswego. The vessel did not carry the lights which she ought to have done, and Capt. Andrews was deceived as to what tack she was taking. A large hole was made in the upper works, near the forward gangway of the steamer, but no actual damage was done to the body of the boat. An expense of $50 will make the breach good. The steamer took the vessel in tow, and brought her to Malden. The BUCKEYE got here at an early hour, last evening, and leaves again on Tuesday. ----- Detroit Tribune
