COLLISIONS. -- The schooner ADRIATIC, with a cargo of staves, while lying at anchor in the stream opposite Woodward Avenue, this morning early, was run foul of by the schooner RUBY, which was rounding to the tow of a tug, carrying away her jibboom and damaging some of her head gear. She will probably proceed to Buffalo for repairs. -- Detroit Tribune.
