From additional particulars as to the loss of the Barque Inanda, Smith Master owned by Messers Sattisfed and Fox, Liverpool, it appears that she was driven on that part of Blackwater Bank called Howlins Bed during the gale of Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. She was bound from Lagos, south Africa with palm oil and nuts to Liverpool.

The Crew suffered considerable hardship during the voyage as fever of which three died prevailed on board. There were eight hands on board when the vessel struck and all of them escaped in their own boats and got on board the pilot cutter belonging to Wexford.

The Vessel has since been got off the bank by aid of the Steam Tug Rugby, but no hopes are entertained that she can be saved. Efforts are being made to save the cargo, which are likely be successful.
