DUBLIN Dec. 17.- The vessel reported by telegraph on the Arklow banks is the Tenasserim bound to Calcutta with a general cargo. She is under water and one report says is breaking up but another says she holds together still; the fore and mizen masts are still standing. The master and thirty three of the crew have been taken into Arklow by the lifeboat of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution which took them from off the foretopsail yard: two men and a boy lost. She went ashore 25th Dec.
