Collision and Loss of a Schooner. - On Thursday, July 7th, the propeller BRISTOL, bound up, and the schooner AZOV, bound down, collided on Lake Ontario. Immediately after the collision taking place everything was done by the captain and crew of the propeller to render assistance to the schooner, but after some time this was seen to be impossible, and the crew of the Azov was taken on board the propeller and the schooner abandoned. The schooner AZOV passed through the Welland Canal on June 17th with a cargo of wheat consigned from Chicago to Kingston.
