      . . . . .

      ACCIDENT. - The schooner AUTOCRAT sustained damages coming over the Flats a
night or two since, and is now here undergoing repairs. She was in a tow in company with
schooner HINCKLEY, when the latter by some means grounded, the former unavoidably
running foul of her, carrying away her jib-boom and head-gear. She afterwards received
further injuries by being run into by the MARQUETTE. The latter vessel is also detained
here for repairs resulting from the above collision. -- Detroit Free Press.
