South Australian Government Gazette 19 October 1854

The “Ostrich” arrived in this port on the 21st July after a passage of ninety three days, bringing to the Colony one hundred

and eighty eight souls. Four deaths and four births occurred during the voyage or before final disembarkation. All the deaths

happened during the fourteen days in which the emigrants are allowed to remain on board. The Surgeon of this vessel also

suggests the propriety of having the lying-in hospital removed from the single women’s apartments. He complains of a deficiency

of some of the medical comforts, such as porter and brandy. The emigrants arriving in this vessel were of a most eligible class;

and the single women found immediate employment.
