COLLISION. -- Night before last, as the schooner MOUNTAINEER was lying at anchor in the river near Malden, she was run into by the schooner M. S. SCOTT, in tow of a steam tug bound down. The MOUNTAINEER had her bowsprit and all her head-gear carried entirely away, and her fore top-mast was broken so as to render a new one necessary. She was towed back to this port, and will undergo repairs at Wolverton's ship yard. The MOUNTAINEER cleared in this city, a few days since for Oswego, with 10,000 bushels of wheat and 600 barrels of flour. We did not learn the extent of the injuries to the SCOTT, but they were not so serious as to prevent her keeping on her course. -- Detroit Adv., 14th.
