Collisions - Yesterday two collisions occurred in the harbour, and although they caused some damage, fortunately there was nothing particularly serious. The prop. Russia arrived with the schooner Gleniffer, and in coming in to the dock she crossed the bow of the schooner Dauntless, taking away the bowsprit of the latter. The accident is said to have been unavoidable. Another collision occurred during the day. The tug Chieftain was towing the schooner Prussia away from the Kingston and Montreal Forwarding Company's Dock for Garden Island. The tug fowled the prop. Shickaluna with her mizzen boom and tore away the smoke stack of the latter. The damage in this case is more severe than in the other, but is not so severe after all. In separating, the rudder of the tug struck the steering gear of the Prussia, injuring it somewhat. The collision will be the means of giving employment to a considerable number of men for a few days.
