COLLISION. -- On Tuesday night, while several tows of vessels were passing down the river, the schooner PRINCE ALFRED and one other vessel in the same tow came in collision with the schooner CITIZEN, while the latter was lying at anchor at the mouth of the Detroit River, and, it is averred, near the middle of the stream. The two first named crafts were stripped of their jib-booms, bowsprits and headgear, and will necessarily be detained for repairs. The CITIZEN also sustained serious damages to hull and rigging. All of the above vessels will doubtless be towed up to the city as soon as tugs can be obtained for that purpose. --- Detroit Adv.
