The schooner SASCO, while on her passage down through Lake Huron, and when off Point aux Barques, on Wednesday night (6/6), was run into by the bark R.G. WINSLOW, colliding with such force as to carry away the former's rail, bulwarks stanchions and rigging on one side, and entirely ruining her fore-sail, besides damaging her hull to a considerable extent. She was enabled to reach the River St. Clair with the remainder of her canvas. From thence she was towed to this city, where she undergoes the necessary repairs, which it will take some days to complete.
      The bark arrived here also yesterday afternoon, with her bowsprit, head gear and fore-yard gone.

      The damages sustained by the R.G. WINSLOW in the recent collision with the SASCO, will amount to $500. The SASCO's will be a trifle over that amount. Both vessels are here undergoing repairs. - Detroit Advertiser.
