Another Collision - The stm. CHAUTAUQUE ran foul of and sunk the schr. LODI, Capt. Tubbs, last night, somewhere in the vicinity of Sturgeon Pt. The LODI was bound for Conneaut and had on board 24 packages of merchandise for Mr. Hall, 14 for Mr. Ford and a few barrels of salt to the master. The articles lost consist of tea, coffee, spices, crockery and other perishable commodities. The vessel belongs to the master, who has hopes of again raising her. The merchandise of course will be lost, and the CHAUTAUQUE have to make it good.

      The Storm on the Lakes - asks the question: could the gale of 18th Nov. have been anticipated? The answer is yes with the use of barometers.
      -Losses on the Western Lakes
      The annexed list is supposed to comprise all the vessels that have suffered material loss the past season on Lake Erie & the Western lakes. The estimated damage, being founded on public report, is not to be relied upon; but the aggregate amount is supposed to be much short of the actual loss. No estimate has been made of furniture of emigrants, or baggage of passengers. The amount of losses covered by insurance heard of is $21,725.
