COLLISION. - The bark GOLDEN WEST and schooner YANKEE, both bound
up in tow of a tug, had a collision on Friday morning in St. Clair River, near Sarnia.
The former vessel, being foremost in the tow, sheered out of her course and got
aground, causing the latter to run foul of her, resulting in carrying away her
jibboom, losing one of her jibs, which fell into the stream and was not recovered,
also smashing her small boat. The bark sustained no damage of consequence and
proceeded on her voyage. The latter is detained at Newport for repairs. - Detroit
