By the arrival of the Isabella Jackson, from Wellington we hear of several wrecks, among which the most important is that of the American ship Mary Morrill, belonging to Messrs. Taylor and Co., of Boston, 17. S. Tho Mary Merrill left Lyttelton about a month since after discharging a largo cargo of "notions" consigned to Messrs. Taylor and Co., of Norwich Quay. Since her arrival in Wellington she had been loadiug wool, of which she is supposed to have had about 250 bales on boavd. besides a considerable quantity of sheop skins. On tho morning of the 21st inst., at 9 a.m., she commenced to drag her anchors, owing to th« violence of the gale which had been blowing for some hours from the south-east. It is reported that she drove with unprecedented rapidity, and thatin about four hours she wontnshoro at Ngahau ranga, on the Hutt road, a distance of nearly three miles from her anchorage. At the first bump her three mast3 went over the side, while the second started her sternposts, when sho shortly bocaino a total wreck. The vessel has since been condemned, and is to bo sold with her cargo, for tho " benefit of whom it may concern." The Independen* of the 25th, has an article calling on Captain Taylor to institute an inquiry for the credit of the port, and stating that the captain and a portion of his crew were not on boaid at the time of the disaster. From information derived from Capt. McCellnn, we are enabled to state that there is every reason to believe that the captain was on board, »3 the mate had leave of absence, and could not return to Iris vessel in consequence of tho state of the weather.

21/04/1942 Carolita Barge - Lighter X131 (+1942) wreck
Carolita Barge - Lighter X131 (+1942) In 2004 after extensive research, D. Mallard & T. Anastasi, finally identified the wreck as the X-Lighter.  The cause of the sinking and exact date when it occurred is still unknown. The X131 Water lighter was one of 200 designed by Walter Pollock and Son of Faversham in Kent for the Dardanelles (Gallipoli) campaign in 1915, one of the bloodiest battles of World War I. It stayed on in Malta as a water carrier until it was bombed in World War II while berthed in Grand Harbour and then scuttled in its current location, which is near to the former Quarantaine Hospital on Manoel Island. For years, the wreck was thought to be an ordinary barge until Mr Mallard, an archaeological diver from the Isle of Wight, carried out an underwater survey and confirmed the vessel´s historical significance. He alerted local diving instructor Tonio Anastasi and others who in turn informed the local authorities.  Mr Mallard yesterday sounded an appeal for the 30-metre-long wreck to be protected from the development of yachting facilities in the area as part of the Manoel Island project.  "The wreck has been on the charts for 40 to 50 years. Any development should have taken that into account. Now it has even more meaning since troops died on it in Gallipoli (Turkey). It is a monument to the Anzac troops and has more right to be on this site than any development. "The X-131 Water lighter remains in almost perfect condition even though it is 100 years old and Mr Mallard believes it can remain like that for at least another century if steps are taken to protect it. The only other known surviving example is moored on the River Thames. Mr Anastasi said that the Superintendent of Cultural Heritage had been informed together with the Malta Tourism Authority.  "The superintendence said it would be looking into the wreck and the general area. There are 200 years of history there as we often come across old bottles and clay pipes. "Documentary-maker Emi Farrugia, who was also on the dive, warned that the wreck could be lost forever unless steps were taken to protect it from development."

21/04/1942 Chenango SS (+1942) wreck
Chenango SS (+1942)At 00.30 hours on 21 Apr, 1942, the unescorted and unarmed Chenango (Master Alfred Rasmussen) was struck by one torpedo from U-84 on the port side between #4 and #5 hatches blasting a huge hole in the hull. The cargo caused the ship to sink within one minute 60 miles southeast of Cape Henry. One boat was launched but it capsized, the other boat went down with the ship, like all the regulation rafts on the ship, because they were improperly stowed on deck instead of in quick release racks. Two men managed to reach a raft which had floated free when the ship sank. This raft had been condemned in New York and the only supplies on the raft was water and a fishing line. Twelve days later the raft was sighted by an US Army aircraft. Six hours later they were picked up by a PBY Catalina aircraft of the US Coast Guard and were taken to the Marine Hospital in Norfolk, but one of the rescued men died two days later. The crew of 32 men was made up of 12 different nations, there were Americans, Danes, Norwegians, Estonians, Swedes, Chileans, French, Portugese, Canadians, Columbians, Belgians and Irish. Only one Irish Fireman survived.

The torpedo struck in the #1 hold, which was flooded but the engine room was still intact and the ship was still moving. At 19.14 hours, a torpedo was fired that struck in the #2 hold and caused the ship to sink after six minutes. The nine officers, 28 crewmen and nine armed guards (the ship was armed with one 4in, four .50cal and four .30cal guns) abandoned ship in four lifeboats and one raft. They were questioned by the U-boat, which also gave provisions to the men in one of the boats. The survivors on the raft were transferred into the boats, which were later separated because of rain and moderate seas. The 23 men in two of the boats were picked up by the Norwegian steam merchant Tropic Star on 24 April and landed at Boston the next day. The eleven crew members and two armed guards in a third boat were picked up by the US Coast Guard cutter USS Calypso (WPC 104) on 7 May and taken to Norfolk, Virginia. The ten men in the last boat were rescued on 8 May by the American fishing vessel Irene and May and landed at Cape May, after they were spotted by an US Coast Guard aircraft from Elizabeth City, North Carolina.

In about two hours, the Germans fired over 35 shells into the ship, setting her on fire and then questioned the survivors, asking if anyone was killed.
