COLLISION. - A dispatch to Captain Perew yesterday stated that the schooner C.J. WELLS collided with the schooner HAVANA of Oswego during a dense fog, between Chicago and Milwaukee, and that the WELLS ran into Milwaukee for repairs, having lost her fore and topsail yards and a small anchor. Also had her bow stove in.
      Concerning the HAVANA little is known beyond the fact that she lost her bowsprit, jibboom and head gear.
