. . . . .
The schr. THORNTON, bound down from Chicago, collided on Sunday evening,
with an unknown scow, when off Point aux Barques, by which she had her bow on the
larboard side stove in, though fortunately not serious enough to cause her to leak.
The rail, stanchions and bulwarks were carried away, which will probably cost $50
to repair. The scow's damage was not ascertained.
