THE OVERDUE GLASGOW STEAMER.
" On inquiry at the offices of the Clyde Shipping Company last evening, one of our representatives was informed that no intelligence of the where abouts of the Inishtrahull had been received, but it is said there are several places on the west coast of Ireland where she could have taken shelter with out the Captain being able to telegraph. No Intelligence has been received yet in Limerick as to the Clyde Shipping Company's missing steamer Inishtrahull which left Glasgow for Limerick on the morning of the 28th ult, and is accordingly now six days overdue.
The coastguards at Kilkee have telegraphed to the Receiver of Wrecks at Limerick stating that the port bow of a boat with brass plate marked "Glasgow" was picked up there yesterday, but whether this belonged to the missing steamer or not cannot yet be ascertained.
