We lament to announce, that accounts reached town last evening of the loss of the fine brig Thetis, of and for this port from Quebec, timber laden, the property of Francis Spaight, Esq. The account has it that she foundered an Monday night or early yesterday morning, upon Beale bar in the Shannon, when the wind blew furiously from the west.
The vessel's boat was cast ashore at Tarbert. This morning we received further intelligence in a more accurate shape. The master, Younghusband and crew are safe and it is hoped the vessel and cargo will he preserved.
She lies inside Beale Bar and as the weather has now moderated we trust the loss may not he great. The master continued fast by the vessel all through when most of the crew had deserted her.- Limerick Chronicle.
