COLLISION. - About ten o'clock this morning the scow LOUISA, of Wallaceburgh loaded with lumber, while being towed up the Creek by the tug C.M. FARRAR, struck the jib-boom of the bark CLAYTON, which was backing from the creek to Blackwell Canal through the slip by Sturges Elevator. The jib-boom, foremast and maintopmast of the scow were completely carried away, while the bark was not injured.
