COLLISION. - This morning, just after day-break, as the propeller PRAIRIE
STATE was decending St. Clair River, she collided with the schooner INVINCIBLE,
upward bound. Their bows came together with a tremendous crash. The propeller
upper works were carried away for about 20 feet on her port side, including pilot
house, kitchen, etc. The schooner had everything forward stripped from her, clean
to her hull, but we believe no leak was sprung. - Detroit Tribune.
