The phip was lying in the wind at the time, and there was a slight sea on.

It seems that the ship was caught by a puff of wind, and cume with a sea right on to the tug, of which vessel the engines had been reversed, the danger of the close proximity of the two vessels being apparent to the pilot who had given the order. A collision occurred, and the starboard sido of the ship amidships was struck by the bow of the steam tug, doing some damage. The bulwark plate and covering board have been burst inwards; the upper and second phte cracked—the former very badly, the latter only slightly. The topgallant bulwark and rail are smashed.
