A collision occurred on Tuesday morning, the 24th inst., at 2:00 A.M. in Saginaw Bay, between the schr. GERRIT SMITH, bound up, and a propeller, bound down, which the Captain of the schooner supposed to be the IOWA, and not the TONAWANDA. He reports meeting 3 propellers that night and on the following day the GLOBE, IOWA and the MARQUETTE passed her, the middle propeller being the on with which she collided. The schooner was enabled to work her way back to the river, when she was taken in tow by the tug REINDEER and brought to this city for repairs. Her head gear is all carried away, and the bow stove in, which will detain her some days, before she can again take her departure. Her repair are being made at Campbell & Owen's drydock.
