A number of emigrants left Granton during July for London, whence 20 of them sailed in the Chile for Nelson, and 60 in the Jessie Readman for Port Chalmers. Both detachments consisted principally of domestic servants, artisans, and labourers, and they hailed for the most part from Edinburgh, the northern counties of Scotland, and Shetland. The emigrants per Jessie Readman, during the two or three days they were detained in London prior to the sailing of the ship, were accommodated at the Emigration Depot, Blackwall. These emigrants were despatched by the Agent-General on the 15th July. Messrs. Patrick Henderson and Co.'s new ship Invercargill sailed from Greenock for Otago with 398 emigrants, equal to 335 statute adults. These emigrants were sent out by the Home Agent of Otago. On the 17th July, the fourth of Messrs. P. Henderson and Co.'s splendid new vessels was launched at Port Glasgow by the builders, Messrs. Robert Duncan and Co.
