The propeller WINSLOW brings the report that the barges VERONA and SUMATRA, consorts of the steam-barges SPARTA and VIENNA, collided on Lake Superior, doing serious damage to each other. The VERONA was injured so badly that she was towed under the lee of Grand Island, where she sunk. A steam pump was secured at the Sault, with which she will be raised. She is ore laden. The SUMATRA was damaged about $1,600 worth.

The barge SUMATRA, bound up, light, collided with the VERONA, bound down with ore, a few days ago, near Grand Island, Lake Superior, injuring the VERONA to some extent. She was towed to the Island and beached and a pump sent for. The SUMATRA proceeded to Marquette. The vessels are the property of the Cleveland Transportation Company.
