Collision at Sea.

--On Saturday night last, a schooner, name unknown, supposed to be of about 120 tons, ran into the steamship Jamie Adger, on her way from New York to Charleston, striking her just forward of the wheel-house, breaking up one wheel and damaging the railing around the wheel-house. The schooner showed no lights, and was not seen by any one aboard of the Adger, until she was quite close to her. The Adger lay to five hours, but as nothing was seen of the wrecked schooner, it is supposed she sank immediately with all on board.
