Midland Queen and Ottawa Touch Noses.

Sault Ste. Marie, Oct. 5th - The steamer Midland Queen, upbound, collided, last night, about nine o'clock with the steamer Ottawa, down bound, off Cariboo Island, Lake Superior. A dense fog was on at the time. The Ottawa has some plates bent both above and below the water line, near the bow, but is not leaking. The stem and bow plates of the Midland Queen were damaged considerably. The Midland Queen is owned by James Playfair, of Midland. She was light bound up the lakes for grain, but returned here and will make some temporary repairs before going up the lakes again.
