The Canadian Steamer "Huron" cleared from here on Saturday evening with a cargo of nearly 4,000 barrels of flour for Montreal and Quebec. In going down the harbor in the dark she came in collision with the schooner rigged scow "New World" with a load of lumber, when the steamer swung around against the dock at he Island, stove a hole in her, and immediately filled. Her flour has been taken out, about eleven or twelve hundred barrels of it being wet. The amount of damage to the flour we are unable to estimate. The steamer is not supposed to be materially damaged, but she will have to go on to the drydock.
