    Read All About It! ...

    WRECK OF THE FL0RANT. WOY WOY, Thursday.— The auxiliary fore-and-aft schooner Florant struck the east spit on the Brisbane Water bar at the flood tide, about 3.30 p.m. on Wednesday. She took the old boat channel which, owing to adverse winds, has silted up, and struck on a sunken rock, which went through the bottom on the starboard side. The heavy current at that point carried her to the eastward, and through the continual bumping she has lost her rudder, and is now full of water. There is very little hope of salving the hull. There are two Jersey City oil engines installed. The Florant was a regular trader between Sydney and Gosford, carrying general cargo and returning with timber. She is a vessel of about 40 tons, owned by the captain and others.
