The Blervie Castle, a 600 tons steamship with 34 crew and 22 passengers aboard sailed from London bound for Adelaide in Australia.  The pilot left her off Dover in the evening and soon after a gale struck the vessel and drove her up on the sands in the English Channel.  The ship was completely destroyed and no survivors were found.  (By John Osborne)
