| WHITEHAVEN, DEC. 24About midnight, on Friday the 13th inst. the sloop Bachelor, of Donaghadee, William M'Cormick, master, bound from Liverpool to Belfast, was run down by a square-rigged vessel, between the former place and the Calf of Man. What became of the two men who were on board, besides the master is not known. He saw no more of them after the vessel received the stroke; but, with much difficulty, got the boat launched, and with it quitted the sloop a few minutes before she sunk. The ship which ran afoul of him bore on her course, without making any attempt to assist him. In this solitary and perilous situation, exposed not only to the dangers, but to the great severity of the season, he remained till the evening of the 16th, when he providentially fell in with a sloop belonging to Sandsfield, which took him up, and landed him the next morning near St. Bees.|
