A Brighton correspondent, telegraphing this morning, says: A ketch, name unknown, was driven yesterday’s gale on shore near Felpham, and soon became a wreck. Three men put off a boat, and made towards Littlehampton, but when near the river the boat was overturned a large breaker. Two men sank, but one was rescued by soldiers at the fort on the west side of the river.
