      Jan. 2, 1854 (casualty list)

      . . . . .

We were shown a letter this morning from the Captain of the barque TRADE
WIND, which states that that vessel was run into and considerably damaged by a
fore and aft schooner on Monday night off Barcelona. What one is not known.

We learn that the vessel which came in collision with the schooner TRADE WIND
was the schooner CITIZEN, of Erie, bound from Dunkirk to Erie, light. The vessel
was in charge of the Mate---Captain Culver being at Erie sick. The CITIZEN had
both jib-booms carried away---is in a bad condition---lost big anchor and chain---
damaged about $1,500 or $2,000. Had she been loaded, she must have inevitably
sunk---was lying at Dunkirk Thursday.
