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
      The bark arrived here also yesterday afternoon, with her bowsprit, head gear
and fore-yard gone.
