The schooner MELBORNE, lumber laden, in tow of the steamer NIPIGON, bound for Ogdensburg, was sunk by collision with the steamer THOMAS CRANAGE at two o’clock Monday morning near the head of Russell’s Island in the St. Clair river. The CRANAGE was run on the bank and now lies out ten inches all around. The MELBOURNE’s cargo was for the Skillings, Whitney & Barnes Lumber Co., here. Three collisions have occurred in Detroit river the past week and four wrecks are now on the bottom, between this point and Algonac, the steamers A.R. COLBORN, CITY OF BERLIN and THOMAS CRANAGE, and barge MELBOURNE. The MELBOURNE was lightened Tuesday and raised.
