Muskegon, Mich., June 28. -- The propeller BUCKEYE came into port this evening with her cabin badly mashed and other damage. She came in collision with a schooner on Lake Michigan, and will have to lie up for repairs. The captain of the BUCKEYE says that it was the schooner KATE LYONS which ran into his vessel. He did not think the schooner was damaged much. She lost part of her rigging. The collision took place in a heavy fog, which was so heavy that the captain said he could not see the scow which he had in tow all night. It was the same fog that the schooners R. H. MOORE and COL. FERRY went ashore.
