      The schrs. TRAVELER and J.F. TRACEY collided on Sunday morning in the Detroit River near the Lower Light, both bound down, lumber loaded. The TRACEY's bowsprit was so badly sprung or broken as to compel her to return to
this port for a new one. She arrived here yesterday afternoon. The TRAVELER sustained no serious damage and proceeded on her voyage.
