Colchester, April 25. -- A steamer with three masts, and towing two consorts is fast on an obstruction two miles west of here. The obstruction is supposed to be the wreck of the schooner GIBBS, sunk near Bar Point three years ago, and brought down last winter by the ice.
      It is the SANTA MARIA that is in trouble at Colchester. The SANTA MARIA, with the TEUTONIA and GAWN in tow, were all bound up with coal, The TEUTONIA was the only boat which struck, and she does not seem to be much injured.
