Shipwreck - An appalling shipwreck, with great loss of life, took place at Robin Hood Bay, near Whitby, a short time ago, in which not only all the persons on board perished, but all the life boat`s men who went to their assistance, except one. The calamity was caused by the drunkenness of the crew, most of whom were in a state of intoxication at the time.
