'Aliquis' Auckland in 1865

New Zealand Bound

The Southern Cross
26 Oct. 1865


The London immigrant ship Aliquis, 1,121 tons register, Captain Davidson, anchored off the North Head at midnight, 91 days out. She left on the 26th of July late, and has had a remarkably fine passage throughout. We hold over her report until our next, owing to the late hour at which she arrived.
    The passengers, to the number of 125, have all arrived in good health, under the medical charge of Mr Foster. The wife of John Logan gave birth to a child; and a third class passenger named Robert Ishurwood died during the passage.
    Among her passengers are, Mr Archibald Clark and family, who have returned to settle amongst us after a long absence.

How did the newspaper come up with 125 passengers when there are 144 passengers??
John Logan and wife and newborn mentioned in the arrival account but missing from the passenger list.
Robert Ishurwood died during the passage so this is an disembarkation list as he is not mentioned.
Mr Archibald Clark and family are mentioned in the arrival account but not on the passenger list.

Little drops of water,
Little grains of sand,
Make the mighty ocean
And the pleasant land.
