STEAMER DAMAGED. - The steamer MILTON D. WARD, on leaving this port Thursday night came in collision with the ferry steamer HOPE, damaging the former's stern. Captain Lathop states he gave two sounds to his whistle, which were repeated, neither of which were responded to by the HOPE, the WARD in the meantime having stopped to avoid a collision. We trust that the HOPE may be enabled to give a satisfactory explanation. - Detroit Free Press.
