Full Text

As predicted in the Herald of the 20th and by some of the marine men along the river, the old barge DREADNAUGHT did not hold together twenty-four hours. She was sunk day before yesterday with stone at the crib as a breakwater, and yesterday it is said a large part of her hull was lying on the beach where it had been washed by the waves.
