BOSTON, Sept. 21. The injury of six
passengers and two of the ship's offi
cers by a collision at sea was reported
by the steamer Juniata, of the Mer
chants' & Miners' Transportation Com

and Norfolk, which returned to this

The Juniata was ram mod last night 30
miles off Chatham by the five-masted
schooner Harwood Palmer, bound from
Baltimore for Portland, Me., with" a
cargo of coal.
Eight persons were Injured. No one
on board the schooner was injured.
That the accident did not result in a
general loss of life on the steamer is
considered remarkable by evory one on
board. The steamer had a great hole
stove in her starboard side amidships,
her cabins from that point forward be

house was -wrecked and the foremast
and smokestack were carried away.
