A NORTH SHIELDS BARQUE RUN DOWN.
On Wednesday, as the screw-steamer Fire Queen of Liverpool cotton laden from New Orleans was leaving Queenstown harbour having coaled on her way to Liverpool she ran into the barque Drydens of North Shields carrying a cargo of wheat from Odessa.
The barque was struck on the starboard bow and sank in the harbour which she was just entering in ten fathoms of water. The Fire Queen had to be put back and grounded her fore compartment being full of water. No lives were lost. The vessels at the time of the collision were in the charge of branch pilots.
