19 ESCAPE IN LAKE COLLISION.

Sandusky, Ohio., Sept. 4. -- Nineteen men had a narrow escape from death last night when the steamer HOMER WARREN and her tow, the barge WILLIAM CROSTHWAITE, collided in Lake Erie, near Kelley's Island. A big hole was stove in the WARREN'S bow, but she managed to reach the Kelley's Island dock, where temporary repairs were made. The CROSTHWAITE sank in the south channel where she is said to be a menace to navigation. Her crew were rescued. Both vessels were lumber carriers and belonged to Shannon & Carey, of Saginaw, Mich. They were bound for Alpena, Mich.
