2nd September 1856. Went aground near Holms, in Kragoesund, Captain Leggett, with a cargo of cattle. Her coals were thrown overboard to lighten her, but she still remained on shore. The ‘William Aldan’ steamer proceeded to her assistance, and the whole of her cargo was discharged. It is feared she will be lost, as she has settled down considerably.
