MULLEN AND OAKES COLLIDE.
      The steamers MARTIN MULLEN and HERBERT K. OAKES collided during thick weather on Lake Superior, east of Marquette, early Saturday morning. The MULLEN was light and went on to Ashland. She will load a part cargo of ore there and come down. The OAKES was downbound with ore and continued on her way. The MULLEN was reported to have a cracked plate amidship. No report has been made public of the damage to the OAKES.

      DAMAGED BOAT IN DRYDOCK.
      The steamer H. K. OAKES, which was recently in collision with the MARTIN MULLEN, is in Buffalo drydock to have extensive repairs made. Her bow was so badly smashed that it will require thirty-two new plates, and she also has some bottom repairs to be made.
