The schooner D.O. DICKINSIN, in coming up the creek yesterday morning, when near Reed's Dock, ran into the wheel-house of the steamer QUEEN OF THE WEST, but without further injury to the latter than tearing away part of the wheel-house, and one of the state-rooms. The jib-boom of the schooner was broken square off. She was drawing about ten feet water at the time, and was loaded with about 16,000 bu., barley and 150 barrels pork.
