History

On Wednesday last during a heavy fog the ship Belfast bound from Liverpool to New-York with from 80 to 90 passengers and crew struck on the rock of Tuscar providentially a fishing smack running in for shelter at the moment took on board about 65. We fear that the remainder met a watery grave as the vessel shortly afterwards got off and went down in deep water.
