Cleveland.---A little before midnight Sundau the propeller NIPIGON and the schooner M.P. BARKALOW, in tow of the tug W.D. CUSHING, Capt. John Archer, met in the river at the entrance to the old river bed. The BARKALOW was coming in with a load of grain from Toledo, and the NIPIGON had coaled here and was going out. A misunderstanding of bells between the tug and the steambarge resulted in a collision, the BARKALOW getting the worst of it. The propeller struck her starboard bow and cut into her decks, planksheer, rail and six or eight stanchions down to within a few inches of the water line. The bill for repairs will be a heavy one.
