Collided With The Tower - During the early hours of this morning excitement prevailed for a time in Kingston harbor. A stiff wind was blowing and a heavy sea was running. The tug Jessie Hall was coming into the harbor with a tow of barges. Suddenly one of them broke away, and before she could be secured was driven heavily against the old tower. The crash was distinctly heard for a considerable distance. The boat, however, survived the shock, and was soon secured. The steamer Toronto, just leaving port at the time, had some difficulty in avoiding a collision with the runaway barge. In her effort to save herself from harm, the Toronto came very near colliding with the tower.
