collision. -- The schooner STORM KING, bound from Chicago for this port with a cargo of wheat, came in collision with an unknown vessel bound up light, on Friday evening, a short distance this side of Long Point. The STORM KING had everything forward carried away, and her stem badly shattered. She was towed into port Saturday afternoon by the steamer SEA. The other vessel probably went down with all on board.

. . . . .
The schr. STORM KING, which arrived yesterday, reports colliding with an unknown fore-and-after off Long Pt. on Friday night, but what vessel was not known. The STORM KING lost her bowsprit, cutwater and all her head gear. She is badly damaged. What the other vessel's name was or how badly she was injured the mate of the STORM KING could not say. She was bound up and was light, and must have sustained considerable damage, if she did not sink instantly.
