The schr. LIZZIE A. LAW, laden with corn and bound down in tow of the steamer EGYPTIAN, collided last night with the schr. DAVID VANCE, loaded with coal from Erie and bound up. 
      Both vessels were sunk. The VANCE lies in 42 feet of water, and the LAW sank not far from her in presumably a similar depth. The collision occurred about 2 miles west of Point au Pelee. 
      The DAVID VANCE is a schooner of 736 tons net register and is owned by Capt. McKenzie and others of this city. She was built in 1874 at Manitowoc, rates A 2 in Inland Lloyds, and is valued at about $24,000. Her hull is insured in the Commercial Union for $7,400 and through Smith, Davis & Co. for $14,000. Her coal cargo is insured in Erie. 

Detroit, Sept. 11 – The wreckers have removed the wreck of the sunken schr. LAW into shoal water where her decks are out. It is expected that she will be pulled to Amherstburg tomorrow, where the remainder of her corn cargo will be removed. Some boat ran into the wreck of the DAVID VANCE Saturday night and pulled out her mizzen mast.
