The schooner MELBORNE, lumber laden in tow of the propeller NIPIGON, was sunk in the St. Clair River, near Russel's island yesterday by collision with the THOMAS CRANAGE. The boat sank soon after being struck. The CRANAGE was run on the bank and now lies out 10 inches all around. She was bound up with a cargo of hard coal.

After part of the cargo of hard coal had been lightered, the propeller THOMAS CRANAGE which stranded in the St. Clair River at the head of Russel's Island on Sunday after sinking the schooner MELBOURNE, was released yesterday. The schooner MELBOURNE's lumber cargo is being lightered into the schooner MONGUAGON, which will probably deliver the cargo owing to the bad condition of the MELBOURNE.
