HUDSON Schooner and Steamer WESTERN WORLD collide off Gravelly Bay. Damage $200 (for both ?)
      Buffalo Morning Express (casualty list)
      Jan.11,1856

      . . . . .


COLLISION.---Capt. Cotton, of the steamer WESTERN WORLD, which arrived yesterday informs us that he was run into on Sunday morning, about 2 o'clock, by the schooner HUDSON, Captain Stone. Neither vessel sustained any serious injury. The night was very foggy and the schooner was not seen by the officers of the steamer until they were within half a length of their vessel from her, and had the HUDSON kept her course she could just have cleared the steamers bows. As it was her bowsprit struck the steamer, tearing out a few boards. The HUDSON, as soon as she ascertained that she was not injured and did not require any assistance from the steamer, continued on her course. The HUDSON had no horn or bell on board or anything with which to make a noise, hence the accident. The WESTERN WORLD was making only four or five revolutions, just enough to keep her on course.
