      COLLISION. - On Saturday night the scow propeller COASTER, bound from Port Ontario for the Genesee River, with bark, collided just above this port, with the Canadian schooner COQUETTE, bound from Toronto for Oswego with lumber, demolishing the bow of the propeller and filling her full of water. The captain and crew and owner of the cargo, came ashore in the small boat, procured the tug J.H. BLOORE, and towed the propeller into port, which was kept afloat by the buoyancy of her cargo. The schooner received some slight damage. - Oswego Times.
