LOSS OF A BARQUENTINE.
MASTER AND SEVERAL OF THE CREW DROWNED.
A telegram has been received in Ardrossan respecting the loss of the ship 'Elizabeth Roy at Tory Island, and the drowning of the master Captain M`Sparran, three of the crew, and one stowaway. Full particulars not being to hand, the names of all the drowned are yet unknown. The ship we believe was partly owned by Captain M'Sparran who was well known and highly respected in Ardrossan, where his wife and family and he reside and where he has also carried on business in the grocery line for a number of years past, under the superintendence of Mrs M'Sparran.
