The crew had been in a very perilous state from the 6th, when the ship became water-logged during the tremendous gale of that day. Captain Johnston, in a letter to the owners, expressed himself under the greatest obligations to Captain Bona of the brig Mary of Richibucto, who took the crew and passengers in safety off the wreck, at considerable hazard, with the exception of two seamen, who perished in the gale of the 6th. The ship's company then consisted of the master and twenty-two seamen, and there were also on board two cabin and twenty-one steerage passengers.
