The schooner CUYAHOGA, which cleared from Milwaukee for Buffalo on Saturday morning, collided with an unknown vessel that night, losing her jib boom, and cutwater. She put back to Milwaukee for repairs, and arrived there on Sunday morning. At the time the collision occurred rhere was a dense fog on the lake, and both vessels were running at a tolerab;y fair speed. The other vessel, which, it is thought, did not sustain any serious damage, passed out of sight before her name could be ascertained.

COLLISION AND ACCIDENT. --The vessel with which the schooner CUYAHOGA collided, while abreast of this port, Sunday night, was the schooner H. H.. BROWN, of Detroit. The damage to the BROWN is about $200. About an hour after the collision, and while repairing damages, one of the men on board the BROWN got caught in the slack of the main sheet, and had his foot torn away from the leg, and the lower part of his body badly jammed. The captain sent him to the Marine Hospital at Chicago, but the chances are that he will die. His name is Alex. Murray, and he resides somewhere in the vicinity of Ogdensburgh. -- Milwaukee News.
