The Hylton Castle, a large steam collier, arrived at Victoria in January, under a three-year charter to R. Dunsmuir & Co., with J. Baumann, captain, H. Dixon, first officer, F. N. Laws, chief engineer. The vessel was built in 1871, and was two hundred and fifty-one feet long, thirty-two feet four inches beam, and nineteen feet two inches hold, with engines twenty-eight and fifty-five by thirty-three inches. At the expiration of the charter in 1883 the steamer returned to England, and three years later, while en route from New York to Rouen with a cargo of corn, foundered twelve miles south of Fire Island light, drowning the captain and ten men. The wreck was a menace to vessels approaching New York harbor for a long time and was finally destroyed with dynamite. E. W.
