Full Text

Collision. - The steamer CLEVELAND and brig REBECCA came in contact about 70 miles out, on Saturday night. The CLEVELAND had a portion of her bulwarks on the fore-quarter carried away, and the brig was considerably injured. The damage to either, however, was not serious. The REBECCA, however, returned to port yesterday for repairs.

A strong gale commenced blowing from the south and west last night, which continued with considerable force until this morning, producing some disasters among the vessels.
The steamer CLEVELAND had a collision with the brig REBECCA, somewhere off Siver Creek, doing some injury, and causing the latter vessel to return to this port. Her bob-stay, head rigging, cut-water, and jib-boom, were carried away, and the steamer is somewhat shattered about her starboard gang-way. She is now on the railway. - Buffalo Commercial Advertiser, October 3.
