Full Text

COLLIDED. - The schooner H.A. RICHMOND, laden with coal, bound up on the 30th ult., while lying at Beaver Harbor, Lake Michigan, was run into by the schooner MAZEPPA. She was struck about ten feet forward of her beam on the port side, cutting three planks below and two above water entirely through, breaking two of her frames. The Captain immediately got a sail under her and worked her into the inner harbor, where she was lightened of her coal and was kept afloat. He is waiting for the LEVIATHAN to tow her to Milwaukee for repairs.
