Brig ALEXANDER, Booth master, of Aberdeen, for St. John's, New Brunswick, put back to Loch Foyle, near Derry on 1 May, having on 25th April been taken in lat. 54.16, long. 18 with a violent gale of wind from N.W., with hail, rain and heavy sea. As vessel laid to under close reefed main topsail, brig was struck by a dreadful sea, which threw her on her beam ends. Two successive waves swept away boats, bulwarks, cook-house, stanchions and everything on deck. Passengers' berths and great part of their provisions were destroyed. Many of passengers (of which there were 140 aboard) broke out into acts of insubordination, so that it became necessary to return with the vessel, some of the emigrants proving to be of the most base and profligate character.
