1865-09-06 THE RUSSIAN NAVY

London Times, 6 September 1865, p. 12: THE RUSSIAN NAVY.

            A Russian steam frigate has put into Harwich harbour this week short of coal. The frigate, which carries six guns, fell short of fuel when within a few miles of Harwich, and in order to get up sufficient steam to reach that port was compelled to burn nearly every available article of furniture on board.
