COLLISION - The schooner DEFIANCE and brig WILLIAM TREAT, both belonging to the Lake Navigation Company, collided on the 27th, on Lake Huron. The schooner sunk soon after off Presque Isle. She was loaded with wheat for Oswego. The brig was loaded with lumber, and could not sink, but became water-logged and was towed by the tug RELIEF, into Presque Isle. The DEFIANCE, we subsequently learn, is a total loss. Her crew escaped without injury.
