« A Confederate Steamer run down in the Clyde.—The Iona, -v^ich had been sold to the Con- federate Government about three weeks ago was run down ani sunk on Thursday night off Gourock. On her return trial trip the Chanticleer met the Iona, which had been getting her compasses adjusted that day, steaming towards her anchorage ground in Gourock Bay, when a collision ensued, the Chanticleer running right into the starboard quarter of the other vessel, cutting her nearly in two aft the mainmast. The Chanticleer backed out, and the Iona sank six minutes afterwards. The crew, numbering 21, escaped into the boats of both veesels, and were taken on board the Chanticleer without delay. The Iona was built in 1855 for Messrs. David Hutcheson ( and Co., and since that time has been the favourite 1 passenger steamboat on the Clyde. She was 220 horse- t power, and her tonnage was 325 ton?. She had on board J a full cargo of coals and general stores, which together with the vessel were insured. z
