The wreck of the Garibaldi

Kingston Nov. 25. Three of the seamen off the schooner Garibaldi reached here this morning. Their hands had been frozen, but are better now. They lost all their clothing, but the captain promptly paid them all the wages coming to them. Stonehouse was the name of the mate who was frozen to death. When discovered Monday morning, he was standing beside the cabin window encased in ice, or as one put it," a regular iceberg" His hands were over his head. One of the Frenchmen wanted to stay on the vessel but the mate threw him into the boat and ordered him to make for the shore. The rigging was one mass of ice. The vessel will remain in her present condition until spring. She was lying easy when the seaman came away.
