Would that be the Red Star's 'Russland' of 1873, build by Gourlay and wrecked on Long Beach, New Jersey in 1877?

Launched 1872 as the 'Kenilworth' and first used on the Red Star Liverpool-Philadelphia service. To the American Line in 1874, but returned to the Red Star the following year. Named 'Russland' in 1876 and transferred to the Red Star's Antwerp-New York route. Lost with no loss of life in March 1877 at Long Beach, New Jersey.
2,595GT, 345' x 37', iron hull, single screw, compound machinery, 10 knots, 20 1st class, 500 steerage.
