Collingwood, Ont., Nov. 16. -- The schooners HIGGIE and MARY COLLINS left yesterday afternoon for Chicago, and during the heavy gale of last night put back to this port for shelter. The COLLINS managed to fetch up inside with her canvas more or less torn. The HIGGIE brought up eight miles below here with mizzen gone, mainsail split, yawl lost, and anchor brakes gone. The tug McPHERSON went to her assistance this afternoon and leaves again to go to her at 12 tonight with new anchor brakes. The HIGGIE is almost encased in ice. The vessel is riding easy. The captains of both vessels say that last night's gale off Cabot's head was the heaviest they ever experienced.
