The Monday, May 22, 1854, edition of the New York Tribune carried this additional account of the arrival of the Dirigo, Capt. Young, from Glasgow, with additional survivors of the wreck of the Black Hawk:

"MORE PASSENGERS FROM THE BLACK HAWK

The ship Dirigo, Capt. Young, from Glasgow, arrived last night with 270 passengers and part of the crew of the Black Hawk, the wreck of which we have before reported. About 70 passengers of the Black Hawk yet remain unheard from, but they are probably in England."

This is the complete account in that newspaper on May 22, 1854. No passenger names were given.
