INTERCOLONIAL.

[By Elkotbio Telegraph—Copyright.] (Pkb Press Association,]

COLLISION AT PORT PHILLIP HEADS, MELBOURNE, June 24.

The lolanthe was in charge of a pilot at the time the collision occurred, and she struck the Cape Verde between main and mizzen masts and cut into her as far as the after hatch. The Cape Verde sank in five minutes in seven fathoms of water. The crew, numbering thirty-three, took to the rigging, and were all rescued by the lolanthe s boats and the Customs launch. Tne night was dark and squally, and the Cape Verde was at anchor at the time. The two vessels came together with a terrifio shock. The lolanthe had just starboarded her helm to clear another vessel, and then ported it to pass the Cape Verde, but the ship did not respond to her helm quickly enough. The lolanthe, though making water, is in no danger.
