      Lakes during 1871, Capt. J.W. Hall

      . . . . .

      COLLISION. - A collision took place on the upper end of the St. Clair Flats Monday
between the schooner DELAWARE, grain laden, and the schooner ONTARIO, lumber
laden. The former lost her jibboom and a portion of her head gear. The ONTARIO also
suffered the loss of her jibboom, bowsprit and headgear. The DELAWARE has arrived at Detroit in tow of the tug RIVER QUEEN, and was taken to Campbell, Owen & Co's yard for repairs. The ONTARIO will probably have her repairs made at Chatham.
