SHIPWRECK - NINE LIVES LOST
From our Correspondent
Dingle, Feb. 22.
A barque named the Success, bound for Liverpool from Demerara and laden with timber was driven on the rocks at Ventry harbour yesterday morning and became a total wreck. In conquence of the place where the vessel struck no assistance could be rendered the rocks being so steep and it blowing a storm at the time.
Nine of the crew were drowned. The captain and one man were saved by clipping to an air-bed which was washed on shore.
