Wrecks on the New South Wales Coast. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 23 July 1886
'Wrecks on tlie IVevr Pouth Wales Coast. The recent terrible disaster to the steam ship Ly-ee-Moon, and the awful loss of life which accompanied it, is the most fatal occurrence of the kind that has ever taken place on the coast of this colony, with the exception only of the wreck of the Dunbar.

In 1875, fifteen vessels, of 1675 tons, were wrecked, with 112 passengers and crew on board, and 28 lives were sacrificed. In this year the most serious loss of life occurred when the Helen Macgregor, steamer, was lost in attempting to leave the Clarenco River, eight of the 29 persons on board being drowned. In 1 87 6, 26 vessels, registering 1970 tons, were wrecked, and 39 out of a total of 121 passengers and crew perished, the majority of those drowned being i...
