Ennis Jan. 18 ---
Every exertion is making by the master and crew, aided by the Police stationed at Milltown and Kilrush and the peasantry to land the cargo. The attendance of the Police was ordered by the Reverend Andrew Davoren whose exertions and influence as a Magistrate were the means of preventing any part of the cargo from being plundered. She was driven in by a strong gale from the westward and is a complete wreck.
The Minerva sailed on the 29th December and had a very boisterous passage, From the rough shore on which she was driven the escape of the crew and passengers has been considered most providential. The above statement has been kindly furnished us by three gentlemen passengers in the Minerva, who arrived here yesterday, on their way to Limerick.
