COLLISION. - Monday morning, as the schooner MAY QUEEN was being towed down the river by a tug, says the Detroit Advertiser, she came in contact with the steamer MAY QUEEN, which was lying at Jones' dock. The schooner's jibboom was run into the steamer's wheel house, which was stove in, also tearing away two staterooms, some stanchions, &c. The steamer was injured to the extent of about $300. The schooner's injuries were light.
