COLLISION. - The schooner CHRISTIANA, of Toronto, cleared from this port at 11 o'clock last night, and when about 14 miles out, she found the gale too heavy for her, and put back, arriving here about 2 o'clock this morning. On nearing the harbor she signalled for a tug, but failing to obtain one, she drifted on in the gale. She attempted to throw out her anchors, but for some reason was unsuccessful in this also. At this time she had drifted down opposite the City Hall building, and then threw a line to a schooner lying at anchor there. The line parted and she went on, striking the bridge near the west end, breaking through the floor timbers, stripping the planking on the walk, and taking out a section of the railing. She also dismasted a small yacht which lay by the dock. The schooner herself was not damaged much. -- Oswego Times.
