COLLISION. - On Friday last, the schooner WHITE SQUALL, bound up, collided with the brig QUEBEC, bound down, in Lake Erie, near Point au Pelee. The latter vessel was loaded with square timber. The QUEBEC lost her jib-boom and bowsprit. We did not learn that the schooner sustained any material injury. The QUEBEC was in port yesterday, and the WHITE SQUALL passed up. - Detroit Free Press, 4th.
