The Collision of the Rochester - The steamer Rochester has been sufficiently repaired to enable her to resume her trips from Belleville to Oswego. The vessel with which she collided appeared to be the boat generally supposed to have been the one, the schooner Belle of Hamilton. The Belle, when so considerably injured, sailed down to Kingston, and has since been repaired here, replacing her jib boom and bow sprit by new pieces. She is now ready to sail again. The accounts of the two boat captains disagree as usual, and an investigation into the nature of the collision will likely take place.
