The schooner ADVANCE, which was in a collision recently with the schooner FLEETWING, arrived at Milwaukee Sunday in charge of the tug WILLIAMS, of Manistee. She is badly wrecked forward where the FLEETWING struck her. Her head gear and jibboom are gone, her port bow is badly smashed. She also has seventeen stanchions broke, and is badly sprung all over by the force of the collision. Captain Paulsen says that at the time of the collision the FLEETWING had a lookout on board.
