      . . . . .

      We learn of another collision, which took place a short distance above the Flats, between the schr. PURITAN and scow LIME ROCK, the former bound down, the latter bound up. The PURITAN sustained serious damages amidship, by having some eight stancheons and a portion of her rail carried away, also her mainsail and foresail somewhat injured. She has arrived at this port, and is being repaired at Capt. Jones'
ship-yard. The LIME ROCK received no injuries of consequence. - Detroit Free Press.
