COLLISION. -- Last night, as the schooner AUSTRALIA, of Vermilion, was coming up the river, on her way from that port to Detroit, with a load of stone for the new Custom House, the schooner HUBBARD, of Trenton, was towed into her by the tug BRUCE. The jib-boom of the HUBBARD pierced the AUSTRALIA's main-sail, carrying away part of it. The latter vessel had her main-boom carried away. -- Detroit Tribune, 16th.
