      On Saturday night the government steamer R.B. HAYES, while near Amherstburg, collided with the schooner J.N. CARTER, laden with grain for Kingston. The CARTER was struck on her starboard side, smashing her cutwater and carrying away her bowsprit and jibboom. The steamer's bow was injured. The CARTER ran into Detroit for repairs. She does not leak. The HAYES is responsible for the accident as it did not answer the whistle of the tug which had the schooner in tow.
