The propeller LEHIGH arrived here at 6 o'clock last evening and reports the sinking of the Schooner VAN VALKENBURG 3 miles above Thunder Bay Island. The propeller struck the schooner on the port side forward of the fore-rigging, and she sank inside four minutes. The crew were safely taken on board the LEHIGH and brought to this city. The weather was thick and very dark when the collision occurred.
