OCEAN CITY LIFE SAVERS TAKE OFF CREW OF BRITISH BARK.

Atlantic City, N.J., Dec. 16. -- During the gale which swept the coast last night the four-masted English bark SINDIA, Captain McKENZIE and a crew of thirty-three men was driven violently upon a bar on mile below the Ocean City life-saving station.
The SINDIA was caught in the storm as it came near this coast and was blown out of its course. The Captain ordered the masts bared. The waves crashed over it, carrying everything along that was not lashed.
The velocity of the wind increased until it reached fifty miles an hour, when a rainstorm came. The night was dense, the ship being at the mercy of the sea.
Before the lookout was aware of the location of the vessel it poked its nose deep in the sand, and after being heavily pounded swung about and now lies broadside to shore, where it is likely to go to pieces.
