Loss off the Maid Of Galloway Steamer
We regret to observe that this neat little steamer has been lost off the coast of Ireland. The Maid of Galloway plied for several years betwixt Stranraer and Glasgow, and more recently betwixt Liverpool and Dumfries.
While proceeding from Liverpool to Goole on the 30th March she burst a boiler off Holyhead and next day went ashore on the rocks near Balbriggan. It is stated from Dublin under date 2d April that the Maid is breaking up a survey has been held and the hull and machinery recommended to be sold.
