Description
Full Text

The schooner SARDINIA, Capt. Howard, got her stern badly damaged on the 11th., outside the harbor. The tugs ALPHA and FLOSSIE THIELCKE were racing to get the tow, when the former, in endeavoring to avoid a collision with the latter, struck the schooner a very hard blow on the starboard quarter. The ALPHA obtained the tow, but it will cost her dearly, as the damage done to the schooner will foot up some $300 or more.
