Among the other marine casualties so general this month we have to announce that the Cyclops , Brig from Quebec to this port, with a cargo of timber for Francis Spaight Esq, was seen off Dunbeg on the county Clare coast on last Wednesday morning at daylight, by Lieutenant C. Autridge RN Chief Officer of the coast Guard on that station.
Lieutenant Autridge instantly pulled towards her in his gig, and succeeded with great difficulty in getting aboard,
when he was fortunate enough to rescue the mate, six men, and two boys part of her crew , then in a state of the lowest exhaustion, having been for three days without.any, provision.
The survivors have been landed, and the two boys continue very ill their legs and feet so numbed And swollen as to incapacitate them for moving some days yet.
