Disastrous Shipwreck.- The Ship Broad Oak of Liverpool, bound for Liverpool from Pernambuco, with cotton and sugar was totally wrecked off Dunlough-bay Crookhaven Ireland on the evening of the 29th of December. She went to pieces in less than half an hour after she struck and there was scarcely any of the ship or cargo left.

When the vessel struck several of the sailors and the captain sprang on to the rocks but before some of them could crawl up a wave washed the captain and one or two others off again and they perished ; the crew were 15 in number and the captain, mate, and eight seamen meet a watery grave, but the second-mate and four seamen were saved.
