History

LOSS OF THE BRITANNIA STEAM BOAT.

Early on Monday morning last this steam boat on her passage from Newry to the Broomielaw was driven by the gale of Sunday night into Donaghadee harbour and sunk there after having been brought to anchor. The crew and passengers were saved several of them having been awoke by the water coming in upon them in bed. We understand she is not much damaged, and is expected to be got off.
