Events and Echoes

Last week at Northern Bight, while Edward Styles was spinning oakum in his kitchen, a spark from the fire ignited it and as there was a large quantity near it was in flames at once, the house being gutted and much of the furniture damaged before the outbreak was quenched.

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.

Events and Echoes

Men from Trinity Bay report that on Tuesday last two brothers – Ben and Elijah Price – set out in their boat from Long Cove, S.W. Arm Random, to go to Heart’s Ease and when about half way across the boat upset and one of the men, Elijah, was drowned, the other clinging to the boat until rescue came. The drowned man was single and the body was not recovered.
