COLLISION.---The propeller MOIRA and the NOVELTY came in collision on Monday, near Picton, with such force that the stern of the NOVELTY was driven in from a little above the water line, and below that point it was more or less damaged. The NOVELTY succeeded in reaching this port, though it must have required no little care and exertion
to keep her from filling. That she did not go down from the effect of the collision is surprising to all who have seen her since the accident. -- Kingston News.
