FATAL COLLISION OFF HOLYHEAD. On Friday, January 31, there was landed at Plymouth Capt. Hugh Edmondstone, sole survivor of the crew of the brigantine Lancashire Witch, of Barrow-in-Furness, which was run down and sunk instantly by collision with the Spanish steamer Yrmac, trom Liverpool, twelve miles off Holyhead. The night being dark but clear, Brightness lights burning brightly, sud- denly the lights of the steamer were seen, and before her course could be altered the brigantine had been struck on her quarter and went down, carrying with her those of the crew who were below. Capt. Edmondstone was flung into the water by the shock. On rising to the sur- face he found all that remained of his vessel were a few boards, to which he clung and after a quarter of an hour, during which he suffered intensely from cold, he was picked up by a steamboat, which cruised about sometime, but could see no other of the crew—one of whom, Samuel McCaron belonged to North Swilly, Ireland; another to Belfast, and another to Barrow. The remainder were Norwegians. The Brigantine was bound to Swansea, and belonged to Fisher and Son, Barrow.
