Notice to Mariners.
SS "La Hesbaye" reports that on March 11, latitude 48.50, longitude 0. It spoke Brigantlne "Industrie" (E. St. Malo) in the Channel, for Bordeaux, short of provisions, and supplied her. On the 10th, in latitude 44.41, longitude 44.08, she passed within one-quarter of a mile of a waterlogged vessel, bottom up, with stern about six feet out of water, apparently some time in that condition; rudder and stern post had the appearance of being recently broken by being struck by a vessel. The wreck is a very dangerous obstruction to navigratlon.
