      VESSEL CAPSIZED. - Yesterday morning, as the schooner WANDERER emerged from Black River into River St. Clair with a load of lumber, she was run foul of by the schooner COLLINGWOOD, going down. The WANDERER drifted across the bows of another schooner, the S.A. WOOD, which was lying at anchor, and rolled over. Her deck load, consisting of boards and shingles, floated off, and her mainmast was carried away. No lives were lost. She was shortly after righted and towed into port for repairs. She hails from Cleveland and is valued at about $3,000. The damage sustained by the other vessels were light. - Detroit Post, July 8th
