A COLLISION ON ENTERING WELLINGTON HARBOR. - * (by telegraph.) Wellington, To-day. A collision occurred at the Heads last night, between Captain Williams’ barque Australind and the brig Neptune, which were beating up the passage. The Australind was on the port tack, and the Neptune on the starboard, and on nearing one another the wind baffled both vessels, and went in stays, but was not in sufficient time to avoid a collision. The bow of the Neptune struck the bow of the Australind, and the latter had part of the head gear and stem carried away. The whole of the head gear, and four or five staunchions and the bows of the Neptune were carried away, no other damage being done. The captain of the Australind stated that the collision was purely accidental, and would have been avoided had the wind not baffled. MeetingsS OMERSET LODGE.
