Ashore at Trinity

The schr. ‘Elizabeth,’ Wm. Hiscock master, of Hodge’s Cove, S.W. Arm, Random, 32 tons, with crew of 7 men, while beating out the narrows of Trinity this morning misstayed and was driven ashore inside Sherwink; the sea was very rough, the schooner broke up quickly, pounding and lurching against the almost perpendicular cliff. The crew saved their clothes, but little else of their effects; also the sails and running gear. The codtrap was thrown overboard and saved. It is a most unfortunate loss to the owner and crews who are thus deprived of all chance, for a voyage this season. The vessel was bound to the French Shore, this being her maiden trip, as she was built during the past winter. The vessel was insured for $1200 in the Trinity Marine Club; nothing on her outfits. Messrs. R.G. Rendell & Co. outfitted. The crew left per s.s. ‘Ethie’ for their homes on order of Magistrate Lilly.
