The brig MOHEGAN collided with the bark SOMORA on Sunday last, while both vessels were being towed down the Saginaw River by the steamer MAGNET, the latter vessel ahead, fetched up in shoal water, when the former ran into her, carrying away her head rail, sic or eight stanchions, plank sheer, and one plank of her larboard bows. The captain was enabled to reach this port by temporarily repairing the break, covering it with canvas. She arrived here safely this afternoon, laden with lumber, but will proceed no further until all damages are made good. - Detroit Advertiser.
