THE THE CREW OP THE THOMAS AND ELIZA, RESCUED.
[Front a Correspondent.]
On Wednesday morning the sloop Thomas and Eliza of Dumfries from Irving to Belfast, Wilson, master, was driven on the rocks near Cushendun. At daybreak the vessel was perceived by the coastguards who under the command of Chief Boatman Phillips of Cushendun put off and rescued the crew, though at great risk to themselves as a heavy sea was washing over the sloop. In a few hours more the crew would have perished as they were exhausted with cold and water and when taken off were perfectly helpless. Too much praise cannot be given to Chief-Boatman Phillips for his gallant conduct.
