  WRECK OF A TRURO SCHOONER

  Three Lives Lost.

During the heavy weather on Tuesday night the schooner Carrie, of Truro, struck the Runnelstone, and became a total wreck. Carrie left Newport for Tar with coals on the 8th inst. She carried a crew of four all told. Captain Clemens, of Newquay, married, no family: Harry Barnecutt, of Par, married, leaves a wife and three children; Duncan Mackenzie, of Campletown, single, the only survivor, and a lad, Gordon Stevens, of Newquay. On Tuesday night about ten o’clock the Carrie struck the Runnelstone and soon began to settle down. The crew took to the boat, and steered for the lights of Penzance. A Heavy sea struck the boat and washed the captain out of it, and an oar was lost. With the aid of one oar the boat was got close to the cliffs, presumably between St. Buryan and Porthgwarra. The three men then arranged to jump for it. Mackenzie succeeded in clinging to a boulder, and scrambled the cliff. He looked for his companions, but could see nothing of them, and went to a farmhouse, and was well looked after for the night by Mr. and Mrs. James
