COLONIAL TIMES 11TH JUNE, 1833
Dreadful Wreck of the Oporto Transport.(abridged)
At Clifden, in Galway, in December, a portion of a ship was seen floating near the entrance of Roundstone Bay. By the active exertions of the coast-guard, under the command of Lieutenant Hunter, R. N., it was secured. The following day, the remainder of the wreck was discovered, a few miles distance from the first-named place. Uniforms and several bodies have been washed ashore. A few trunks, with mutilated papers and other articles, found by Captain Busby, R. N, proved her a brig of about 350 tons burden.
