COLLISION - The schooner MARY B. HALE and barque POMEROY collided off the Clay Banks a few nights ago doing considerable injury to the HALE. The POMEROY has arrived at this port. In the collision she lost her foretopmast, foremast head, spars, &c., also her big anchor and some 60 fathoms of chain. She is leaking badly, but probably
has not damaged cargo. She will have to go into dry dock. Her repairs will cost $500.
