Detroit, Mich., Aug. 8th - Last night the steamer City of Berlin, laden with 3,000 tons of ore, was sunk off the head of Belle Isle, in a head-on collision with a steamer supposed to be the Chili. The latter was comparatively unhurt and backing away, kept on her course. The crew of twenty men of the Berlin escaped in small boats. The City of Berlin is owned by Capt. Wineman, Detroit. She is a wooden boat. The Chili, which is supposed to have struck her is a steel boat with collision bulkheads and would be little affected by the collision.
