Kingston, Oct. 29. - The Schooner JOHN WEEDEN, of Detroit, laden with corn, from Chicago to Ogdensburg, collided on Wednesday night in a snow storm near Devil's Nose with the Schooner ORION, of Hamilton. All the crew, consisting of 8 men, succeeded in getting on the ORION. The Captain and one man went back to the WEEDEN to get their papers when the vessels parted, leaving them on board. The WEEDEN is supposed to be so badly injured that she cannot float long. The ORION arrived here last night slightly injured.
