Luddington, April 19. -- While trying to enter the harbor in the southerly gale at 6 o'clock this evening, the barge RYAN of the tow of the E.S. TICE struck the north pier. A large hole was stove in the bow, and falling off before the seas the vessel went on the beach. The life-saving crew succeeded in rescuing the RYAN's crew after much difficulty.
In the trip back with the RYAN's crew of six men on board, the lifeboat capsized in the breakers and all were thrown out. It was with great difficulty that the men were rescued and brought to the beach. Capt. Tufts commanding the life crew, had a narrow escape from drowning. The crew of the RYAN are all alive tonight, but very much exhausted from exposure. The hull of the RYAN lies sunk, but close to shore.
