I WRECK IN FISHGUARD BAY. I CARDIFF-BOUND VESSEL ON THE ROCKS. I THE CREW RESCUED BY THE LIFEBOAT. On Thursday afternoon, during the heavy gale, two large steamers and a dandy arrived in Fishguard Bay for shelter. In the evening a north-easterly wind set in, which became more furious towards night. A very heavy sea commenced raging about midnight, and, with the already strong wind prevailing, the positions of the vessels in the bay became so dangerous that at two a.m. signals of distress were shown on the dandy. The coast- guard immediately responded. With all possible speed the Wigwen lifeboat was launched in a terrible sea, and proceeded to the distressed vessel. The vessel turned out to be the Albert, of Watchet, Somersetshire, bound from Belfast to Cardiff, with a cargo of burnt copper ore, and under the command of Captain John Bale. The crew, consisting of the captain and Walter Chidgey and Albert Summon, were taken aboard the lifeboat and landed at the new quay, Goodwick, leaving the vessel at anchor in the bay. The sea at the time raged mountains high, with which the ship battled until about half-past ten on Friday morning, when she parted from her anchors, and drifted on to the rocks under Penslade, Fishguard.
