COLLISION OFF PENARTH HEAD. At six o'clock p.i. on Tuesday last, the barque Aalesund, of Farsund (Captain Troyland), from Car- diff to Campagna, coal laden, was lying in Penarth Roads but as the tide flowed strongly, with a stiff breeze from the south-west, she began to drag her anchor. The tide and wind drove her towards the ship Urda, which also was at anchor, and, despite all efforts of the crews of both vessels, they came into col- lision, and the rigging became entangled. The two vessels bumped each other repeatedly before a clear- ance could be effected, and the Aalesund sustained serious damage, being cut below the water's edge. Both vessels obtained assistance from a tug, and they were separated, but the crew of the Aalesund, owing to the damage their vessel had sustained, got on board the Urda. The captain, mate, and one man of the Aalesund remained on board until Thursday morning, when the vessel was towed ashore, where she now lies full of water, covered at high tide. The Urda was towed back to Cardiff, and at the morning tide en- tered the East Dock, where she will be overhauled for repairs. The crew of the Aalesund were received at the Sailors' Home.
