Full Text

The schooner HERSCHEL went ashore on Sulphur Island on Tuesday in the heavy SW gale. She was loaded with lumber and is now a total wreck. The crew were found clinging to the rigging half dead from having been exposed to wind and sea for several hours. The captain got ashore in a yawlboat but the line snapped and the rest of the crew is in serious trouble.
