Full Text

Collision.--We learn, says the Buffalo Gazette of the 26th, that the steamer ROCHESTER, ran afoul of the schooner EQUATOR, on Saturday night, in the vicinity of Conneaut, and sunk her. The E. was on her downward passage from Detroit, with a cargo of 1,200 bbls.flour, and a lot of other produce. A part of the cargo has been saved and has reached here, and hopes are entertained that the remaider will be secured, though probably in a damaged state.
