COLLISION. - The steamer CAROLINE, while being towed down the river yesterday by a propeller, ran into the schooner HENRIETTA, Capt. H.H. Mass, which was coming in with a load of lumber, near the Lake House Ferry. The HENRIETTA sank in a few minutes, as low as the bulwarks. The damage done to her is probably about $1,000, including injury to cargo. - Chicago Journal, 23 rd.
