The Loss Of The Garnock

The Ayr Steam Shipping Company have given up hope of the safety of their steamship Garnock which, on a voyage from Glasgow to Galway on the West coast of Ireland, encountered the great gale of 22nd December last and has not since been heard of. The vessel which had been re-classed a few weeks before and had been in every way well found and well manned was last spoken off the north-west coast of Ireland on the previous afternoon and there can now be no doubt that she foundered in the storm.
The following are the crew of the vessel :--
Peter Peebles, Glasgow, master.
Alexander Kerr, Lochranza, mate.
Michael Owens, second mate.
John Higgins, Glasgow, chief engineer.
James Baillte, Glasgow, second engineer.
Hugh Wallace, steward.
Donald Kerr, seaman.
Henry Wooding, seaman.
Fred Campbell, seaman.
Martin Linard, fireman.
Patrick Reedy, fireman.
