      LOSS OF THE SCHOONER HOME. - A collision took place on Saturday last, near
the Manitou Islands, between the schooner WILLIAM FISKE and the schooner HOME,
the result of which was the total loss of the latter vessel. The brig was loaded with wheat
from this port, and was only slightly injured. She rescued all the persons who were on
board the HOME, and then persued her way. The HOME was loaded with wood and
cedar posts, and belonged to this city. The collision took place between 3 and 4 o'clock
in the morning, the night being quite dark. The vessels were moving at the rate of about
ten miles an hour. The shock was so great that the side of the HOME, near the bows,
was stove in, and her masts fell overboard immediately. - Chicago Times.
