p.2 Collision - The Chicago Tribune, of Saturday, says "The propeller Northern Michigan came in collision with the Canadian brig Northumberland, about midway between the Beavers and the light ship. The propeller stove in the whole larboard bow of the brig, and damaged herself very seriously; she towed the brig into Beaver Harbor, where she sank, and after patching her own bows proceeded to this port. The Captain of the Northumberland came up on the Michigan and returns to his vessel this morning with the tug Walter McQueen and a steam pump. The vessel was in ballast bound to Collingwood - damages about $1,000."
