Detroit, August 31. - While bound for Chatham with a cargo of coal, the little steamer LILY got out of the channel opposite Sandwich early this morning and ran on the old wreck of the steamer PRINCE EDWARD. A large hole was knocked in the hull of the boat, and she sank in shallow water near the Canadian shore. The crew were nearly all asleep at the time of the accident, but all escaped safely. The LILY will be raised by Capt. H.W. Baker. Earlier in the season the upper works of the steamer were destroyed by fire, and last season she was badly damaged in a mixup at the Flats between the steamers BLACK and COLBORN.
