Detroit, Dec. 7. - The steamer JAMES B. COLGATE and the schooner DUVALL collided off Tashmoo Park, St. Clair River, Tuesday night. The schooner drifted down and finally sank near Muir's Landing, the crew escaping in the lifeboat. The steamer was run ashore above Muir's Landing on the Canadian side to prevent her sinking in deep water.
