COLLISION. - The propeller GENESEE CHIEF, and the fore-and-aft scow ANTELOPE of Kingsville, loaded with fire wood, came in collision a few miles below this port, before daylight yesterday morning. A few feet of the starboard bulwarks of the CHIEF, near midships, were stove in. The bowsprit of the scow was carried away, and her plank above her hull proper stove in. She took in some water, but was towed into port by the CHIEF, and is now unloading. She can be repaired easily. The CHIEF is yet in port repairing. - Cleveland Herald, 1st.
