I hear that a ship lately arrived stopped at Queenstown on its passage out, and then and there picked up thirty- five girls out of the Reformatory. Their conduct on board was described as rowdy.
Otago Witness May 9 1874 pg 17
Did 33 of the female immigrants by the Asia hail from the Reformatory at Queenstown, or did they not? Officers and and passengers declare that the ship did lie off Queenstown Harbour, and that then and there 33 girls were shipped from the Reformatory. The conduct of the Asia's immigrants since landed has been simply disgraceful. From the drunken swarms of ruffians round the hotel opposite the Barracks to the other end of the city, the place has been full of the worst-looking lot of new chums that have been landed here for the last ten years.

A ship, signaled coming up the harbour is either the Golden Sea or Wemmington, with immigrants.
Eleven of the crew of the Golden Sea breached the cargo while the vessel was lying in quarantine and became intoxicated and mutinous. The captain fired his revolver at one of them, but did not wound him. The Lona took over a detachment of armed Constabulary, and the mutineers were taken into custody and brought before the Police Court and remained till tomorrow morning.
A fresh case of scarlatina has broken out amongst the Golden Sea's immigrants. The case has been isolated.

Port Chalmers - the
artist was a chemist in Wellington.
Charles Decimus Barraud (1822-1897) at age 27 arrived at Wellington on 20 August 1849 in the "Pilgrim" with his wife. He was a noted watercolourist and was a founder of the NZ Academy of Fine Arts. Barraud's work reached a wide audience with the reproduction in 1877 of thirty paintings in his book 'New Zealand: Graphic and Descriptive.' Barraud died in Wellington on 26 December 1897 and was buried in the Bolton Street cemetery, after a service in Old St Paul's Church in Mulgrave Street, Wellington. He painted the illuminated texts which adorn the nave.
