On Wednesday night the 9th inst. the stm. CONSTELLATION ran into the schr. ROUGH AND READY, about 6 miles below Conneaut. Threatening to sink, the hands immediately took refuge on board the CONSTELLATION. She floated down the lake past Barcelona, where a steamer took her in tow, and we believe, she is now in port at Buffalo. The ROUGH AND READY is owned at Cleveland, and was laden with flour, grain and seed.
We are indebted to the politeness of Capt. Champlin commander of the U.S. Stm. MICHIGAN, for the following account of the bearings of the schr. JOHN PORTER and of the stm. CHESAPEAKE, sunk off Conneaut on Wednesday night of last week, from coming in collision.
The MICHIGAN with commendable dilegence collected all the furniture, trunks, baggage and freight from the wrecked vessels that could be found, and brought them into port. She also picked up some 130 barrels flour, which is supposed to have floated from the schr. ROUGH AND READY, and which was run into by the stm. CONSTELLATION, on the same night and near the same place where the CHESAPEAKE and PORTER came in collision.
