      December 25, 1852 (1852 casualty list)

      . . . . .

We learn that a violent collision took place between the steamer ALABAMA and the COLUMBIA on Saturday morning at 3 o'clock between Dunkirk and Erie. The propeller struck the ALABAMA forward of the wheel and carried away the guards, with the kitchen, pantry, store rooms etc., and the bowsprit ran through a state room in which a gentleman was sleeping, and carried his clothes through the partition. Fortunately no lives were lost.
