WRECK OF THE TAYMOUTH CASTLE AND LOSS OF ALL HANDS
Messrs Thomas Skinner & Co, 12, Gordon Street, Glasgow received a letter on Wednesday morning from the officer of the Coastguard Station at Cushendall stating that he had found a vessel wrecked at Torr Point near the Station and that the only thing that indicated her name was a life-buoy marked Taymouth Castle.
As the letter is dated Monday Morning it is supposed that she must have got in the neighbourhood of Tor Cor Point which is situated on the coast of County Antrim on Saturday evening and that she had been wrecked in the same hurricane which was so fatal to the Falcon and other vessels.
Ship was 626 tons register and was on her voyage to Singapore, Her cargo was a valuable general one. She was owned by Messrs Skinner & Co., and commanded by Capt. Robert M. Miller. She had a crew of 19 or 20 and 1 passenger. The owners have not abandoned the hope that some of the crew have got ashore. 0n the list of those on board and supposed to be lost is Alexander Thom, apprentice, Aberdeen. The others belong chiefly to Glasgow and other places In the West of Scotland.
