Ramsey Crooks (Brig), aground, collision, 15 Nov 1848
- Full Text
Marine -- Last evening several vessels heavily laden came driving into port, the wind blowing briskly, and much difficulty was experienced in effecting an entrance. The brig RAMSEY CROOKS lost her headway, and drifted with her bow on the south pier near where the MARION is sunk. The barque UTICA encountered similar difficulty, and taking the same sheer that the CROOKS did, struck her about midships cutting down the upper works of the CROOKS and carrying away a portion of her rigging.
The schooner FLORENCE and brig AMAZON after lying on the beach for some days, succeeded in getting into port last evening.
