p.2 Damage To the Banshee - Late yesterday afternoon the schooner Hastings left the wharf of Chaffey Brothers going upwards, light, when, as she was passing inside the shoal tower she became unmanageable, and drifted against that part of the railroad crossing where the steamer Banshee is moored, running her bowsprit through the paddle-box of the steamer, ripping off a part of the guards and bulwarks of her upper deck, and slightly damaging those of the hurricane deck, besides doing some other trifling damage. The Hastings had one of her jibs torn, and some slight injury was done to her head gear.
