Full Text

Kingston News: "The schooner JANE MARIA SCOTT, which arrived at the Montreal Transportation Company's dock this morning, reports having collided with the schooner TAYLOR, of Chicago, on Lake Michigan on the morning of August 10. The SCOTT was on her port tack, while the TAYLOR was running with almost a free sheet when the accident occurred. The TAYLOR came bow on striking the SCOTT just aft of the foremast on the port side and breaking her rail. She also carried away the mizzen forward shrouds and main topmast rigging, besides knocking a hole in her quarter and breaking several stanchions. The TAYLOR lost her jibboom and knocked her bow in, doing a few hundred dollars damage."
