The Southern Cross Friday 12 October July 1860 pg2
Oct. 11 - Caduceus, ship, 1106 tons, John Cass from London. Our whilome visitor the Caduceus, Capt. Cass, long expected, was signalled at last, yesterday morning. She left Gravesend on the 23rd June - the Start on the 28th. The line was crossed on the 25th July, but on account of the Trades proving very southerly, she was driven towards the South American coast, which she sighted at Cape St. Roque. The highest latitude reached whilst running down her Easting was 48° 80°S. On the 6th Sept., in lat. 43° 30°S, long. 49°, an iceberg, and some drift ice, was fallen in with. Capt. Cass brings a clean bill of health, and neither births nor deaths to report. The number of passengers - all told- which she brings is 130½.
