Drowned from a Channel Steamer. SAILOR LOST OFF THE NASH. As the passenger steamer Lady Margaret, Messrs. Edwards, Robertson, and Company's new boat, was making her way back to Cardiff from Tenby on Mon- day evening, one of her crew, a young fellow named El. Rjfers. of Peuarth, was lost overboard in the vicinity of the Nash It appears the passage had been an extremely rough one, the waves being so boisterous as to render it necessary that all ropes and loose gear should be stowed away below, and it would appear as though Roberts had gone below when the vessel had approached comparatively smooth water for some of the ropes, and was in the act of placing a fender over the si&,Yiear the sponson, ready to protect the steamer in berthing at the Penarth Pier, when possibly the weight of the fender, together with the lurching of the vessel, caused the poor fellow to lose his balance and fall overboard. Nc one saw the occurrence, and nothing up to now been seen of the body.
