The harbor has been closely packed with vessels for 3 days past, and considerable perplexity is experienced and some damage done in the passage up and down the Creek. This morning as the stm. LEXINGTON was going out, she ran foul of and carried away the jibboom of the schr. DETROIT, at the same time demolishing 3 of her larboard staterooms and several of the stancheons.
