      COLLISION. - The schooner KYLE SPANGLER, with a load of wheat from Milwauke
for Buffalo, was run into by an unknown vessel in the Straits of Mackinac last Saturday
night. The jib-boom of the unknown craft struck the main mast of the KYLE SPANGLER,
shivering it to atoms. She also lost her main-sail and main-boom. The SPANGLER was
towed to this port by the tug ARMSTRONG, and lies at the Detroit and Milwaukee
Railway dock. - Detroit Advertiser.
