SHIPWRECK ON THE COAST OF CORK.
SKULL. March 25 - The Nuovo Zilente, 211 tons, an Austrian Brig commanded by Giovanni Cipolovich and manned with ten men was bound from Galatz to Queenstown for orders loaded with a cargo of Indian corn. On the night of the 21st instant it blowing a heavy gale from the south the sea running very high and the weather very thick with rain this vessel got embayed in Ballydivillin Bay and was driven on the rocks close to Turf Island about the hour of eleven p.m.
when she immediately sank breaking in the centre and both masts falling over the side. Five of the crew Giovanni Lidovich mate, Stefano Dogo, seaman, Giovanni Giovanovich, Giacomo di Valoseo, and Lucea Vecalich persevered in getting on one of the rocks three of whom were washed off during the night and the remaining two were washed off the same rock about eight o'clock on Monday morning the entire five meeting a watery grave in the presence of the others who had clung to the wreck.
About eleven o'clock a.m the gale having considerably abated a boat came to the assistance of the survivors who were still clinging to the wreck and succeeded in saving them with the exception of one Christopher Lonzo who died from fatigue immediately on landing though every exertion was made to restore life. The names of the survivors are Giovanni Cipolovich (captain), Spiridione Jovanovich seaman, Francesco Coaz seaman and Giuseppe Gropozzo boy who had been taken to the house of William H. Hull Esq. Lemcon, in a most desperate state their legs and hands having been very much cut from the rocks one of the fingers of Jovanovich having been obliged to be amputated.
Nothing could exceed the kindness of Mr.Hull and his hospitable lady in their attentions to these unfortunate men whose lives were entirely dependent on them, On hearing of the dreadful loss of this vessel Mr. W. D. Seymour the Austrian consul at Queenstown came at once to the assistance of the unfortunate survivors who were much pleased on his arrival being the only person who could converse with them in their own language.
Two of the bodies have been washed on shore (Giovanni Lidovich and Giovanni Giovanovich and interred on Castle Point and Christofero Lonso who died on landing is intered inthe Church yard here
