Arrival of the Lizzie Bell.
A barque to the southward was telegraphed from the Pilot-station at Otago Heads on the morning of October 15th. She proved to be the Lizzie Bell, from London, and was towed into Port Chalmers by the p.s. Koputai. She was boarded off Deborah Bay by the Customs authorities, and at once cleared in. The Lizzie Bell is almost a new vessel, being now on her second voyage. She was built in 1878 at Sunderland, and has since made a voyage to Bombay, and from that port to Portland, thence Home, where she was loaded for Otago. She brings passengers and 2000 tons of cargo, of which 700 tons is measurement goods, and the rest dead weight. Her commander is Capt. Moignard, is not a stranger to new Zealand, having commanded the ship Martha Fisher at Auckland last year. The ship left London on July 9th, and proceeded down the Thames to Gravesend; left there on the next day. Took her departure from the Lizard on July 16th. Rounded Cape of Good Hope on the 5th September, latitude 39 and 41 S, and longitude 100E. Making the passage from port to port in 94 days and from land to land in 86 days.
