THE WAR VESSELS' COLLISION.-The Court Martial assembled at Devonport, on Saturday, for the trial of Captain Kirby and Lieutenant Graaam, of the Phaeton, on a charge of negligence arising out of the collision I with the Thrasher. The prisoners did not plead. Lieut. Marston, navigating lieutenant of the Phaeton, said Captain Kirby was not on the bridge at the time of the collision. Witness did not think the altered course brought the Pbseton closer to the Thrasher. The station given to the latter was a perfectly safe one. When the collision was imminent witness sent for the captain. The Court decided that the charges were partly proved against both prisoners, and sentenced them to be reprimanded and admonished to be more careful in future.
