PORT HURON - COLLISION BETWEEN TWO SCHOONERS. -- The schooner BROOKLYN, bound down, came to anchor this evening directly in the path of downward bound vessels. She had hardly got her chain paid out when the schooner H. C. POTTER ran into her, carrying away her bowsprit and jib-boom. The POTTER had her foresail badly torn, but was otherwise only slightly damaged. The full extent of the damage cannot be ascertained until morning.
