ANOTHER WRECK ON THE WEXFORD COAST.
WEXFORD, Tuesday Morning, - News reached Wexford yesterday that a large full-rigged ship had gone ashore at Ballyteigue near Kilmore during the night. Fortunately no lives have been lost. She grounded when the tide was nearly flood so that the falling tide left her some 16 feet out of the water on a bank of sand. The vessel is the Johnstone, Captain Wilson of and for Liverpool from Demerara with rum and sugar.
She had sixteen hands on board. The Captain sighted the Hook and Saltees lights on Sunday night all well but meeting a strong adverse wind in Ballyteigue Bay was unable to get into his proper course up Channel. The vessel went aground about four a.m. on Monday. She is likely to become a total wreck. The cargo however will probably be all saved.
