A Brigantine name unknown but supposed to be J.W. of Carnarvon went ashore at Tacumshane on Saturday night and broke into pieces every soul on board of her perishing. The remains of the vessel were discovered early on Sunday morning and by-and-bye four dead bodies washed up on the beach told the story of the hapless crew.

The only piece of the wreck which was recovered which could lead to the identification of the ill-fated ship was a broken plank with letters -rnarvon painted thereon the portion containing the presumable antecedent letters Ca being broken off.
