Cleveland, June 15. -- The master of the steamer BULGARIA telegraphed from Ashland today that he collided with the steamer VEGA in a fog on Lake Superior Thursday night. The BULGARIA was not injured, but Captain Frank Brown of the VEGA telegraphed from Sault Ste. Marie that his boat will have to go into dry dock. The destination of her cargo is asked to be changed from Ashtabula to Cleveland.
