Captain Miller and his fine barque, the Sydenham, here last year, returned to port yesterday, after an absence of about eight months. The vessel, as upon her former visit, is under charter to the New Zealand Shipping Company, and in the period just mentioned has made the voyage to London with a full cargo of New Zealand produce, and the voyage out just completed bringing a large cargo of general merchandise and fifteen passengers, the names of whom will be found above. Nothing of special interests occurred since leaving the old country, Captain Miller reports, excepting the circumstance of having fallen in with a large barque waterlogged and abandoned in latitude 41 N. and 14 west longitude. The Sydenhan ran close down to her for the purpose of it being ascertained whether any one was on board, and found her name to be the Busken, timber laden. Her main and mizzen topmasts had gone, and all her sails, whilst the sea was washing in and out of her and over her decks. After making sure that none of her crew were on board the Sydenham proceeded upon her voyage. Her report is that she left London on October 29th, and the Start November 2nd. The N.E. trades were got in 23 north on November 20th, and were fresh to 6.50 N. On November 29th the Equator was crossed in 29 W., and light S.E. trades, with a good deal of calms about them, followed to passing Trinidad on December 8th. All aorta of winds wars experienced from there to the Cape of Good Hope, passed on the Boxing Day in 39 8. A capital run down the Easting was made to the Snares, Eighted on Thursday last. Since then had S.W. winds, and heavy W.N.W. squalls were met with up to Akaroa light, sighted on Sunday night last. A light ner'-east wind was taken yesterday early, and the vessel anchored in the fair way at about 8 a.m. Two colonial bound ships were spoken, the Duncraig, bound to Auckland from London, and spoken in 36.11 S., 6 36W. on December 20th, and the Guy Mannering (at this port last year) on December 9th in 22 S. 29 W. She was bound to Newcastle, N.S.W., from London. The entry of the Sydenham's cargo, &c, was made yesterday forenoon at H.M. Customs, due notice of which is given to consignees by advertisement in another column.
