      COLLISION. - The Bark DE SOTO and schooner ELLEN PIKE collided on Saturday night, about thirty miles north of Chicago. It was very foggy at the time, and neither vessel saw the other until too late to avoid the collision. The DE SOTO being light sustained no damage, but the schooner had her fore-rigging, cathead, bowsprit, and everything forward, carried away, and although blowing quite fresh at the time, Capt. Boyd managed to work his vessel into port. - Chic. Trib. 23.
