COLLISIONS. -- The schooners ANDES and HANDY WARNER, the former bound for Chicago, and the latter for Buffalo, collided about four miles from Beaver Island on Monday last. The ANDES was beating up against a head wind, when the WARNER struck her. The blow stove in the hull of the ANDES so that she immediately commence leaking. Her captain made for Beaver harbor, which place he reached, when she immediately sunk in 14 feet of water. The damage sustained by the WARNER we were unable to learn. The captain of the ANDES proceeded to Buffalo to procure a steam pump. -- Detroit Adv.
