Description
Full Text

The Chicago Tribune has the following account of a collision which occurred in the harbor Saturday night: -- The schooner EMMA MAYES, coming in, ran into the schooner WOODRUFF, which was lying across the stream, obstructing the channel, making a collision unavoidable. The EMMA MAYES lost her forward and part of her main rigging, and the WOODRUFF was also slightly damaged. The MAYES in swinging around came in contact with the schooner LITTLE BELL, and tore off her fore-rigging.
