01, 1882 edition of 'The Marine Engineer') 2 (data incl. The vessel continued at full speed in conditions which were in & out of dense fog, apparently without a bow look-out. The crew, some in their night clothes, took to ship's boats but were unaware of their location. It would seem that Alfred Wallis (1855/1942), (A), a 'primitive' artist, painted the ship, but I have not been able to WWW find an image.
29, 1898, the vessel left Galveston, Texas, with a grain & general 3,424 ton cargo & a crew of 28 all told, bound for Rotterdam, with John Wishart, the vessel's captain since 1884, in command. It would appear that the vessel's position may well have been incorrectly determined. 20, 1898, proceeding at full speed in dense fog, the vessel struck. The vessel's hull was ripped open, & soon its stern was in the air & its bow under water - the vessel sank, in 25 fathoms of water, within 10 & maybe within 7 minutes. The forward part of the ship and her machinery were later salvaged.
6, 1904 at Tongmi Point, which seems to be on the coast of China, near Hong Kong.
29, 1884, an Inquiry was held, (#2099 see left), into damage that the vessel sustained in a hurricane, when en route from 'Dantzig' (Gdańsk, Poland), to Boston, U. The date of the damage was not indicated but probably was in very early 1884.
A life, or lives, were lost - the Master was held to be free from blame.

Brischitti' (who may be the agents only), likely of Naples, Italy, & renamed Perseveranza.
The vessel's position was established at noon that day, & a course set for a point 8 1/2 miles S. The captain 'was not in the habit of consulting with any of his officers with regard to the navigation of the ship', & the chief officer did not calculate the ship's latitude. A most unusual incident - actually hitting the rock. ), the ship broke her back behind the bridge, her stern disappearing underwater.
9, 1898, at about midnight, while en route from Plymouth to Cardiff, in ballast, the vessel grounded at Longships Lighthouse 1 1/4 miles off Land's End, Cornwall. The wreck lies on the western side of the rocks in 12 metres of water. I spotted a reference to negligence being the cause, presumably established by an official inquiry. The wreck sat perched there for over a year, I read. 14, 1899, I think that is correct, per Lockett Graham (thanks! ), 2 (Miramar, link, you now must be registered to access).
