Full Text

On the morning of Sunday the 17th inst. the schooner HIBERNIA, of this port, bound with a valuable cargo of goods to York, ran upon the False Duck's in a fog, and was wrecked. The crew, who are saved, managed to get all the goods, with the exception of some casks of sugar, landed on the beach, but more or less damaged by the water.
      In attempting to bring away the cargo, two boats, one belonging to the Dock yard, the other a Durham boat, have also been unfortunately lost, in consequence of the exposed situation of the wreck, and the stormy weather lately experienced.
      The vessel we underatand, is gradually going to pieces. Part of the goods, which belonged to Messrs. Saint George & Co., and Duggan, of York and Mr. Sheldon, of Barton, were brought away on Wednesday by the schooner TWO SISTERS, but a large portion yet remains on the Island, exposed to the weather.
