SHIPWRECK LAMENTABLE LOSS OF LIFE.
We regret to state that the barque Santan of Liverpool Captain Huxtell master from Calcutta to Liverpool with sugar rice and saltpetre was driven on shore at Ballyteigue in the gale of wind yesterday morning where she became a complete wreck.
It Is our painful duly to add that after she struck the captain and three of the crew went into the cabin for the purpose it is supposed of bring up some of their effects but whilst below she lurched and the four perished. The other hands got safely on shore after much difficulty.
Up to our hour of going to press It blew a whole gale of wind from the N.W. and we are in great apprehensions for the result along the coast --- Wexford Independent.
