The Persia, for Auckland, sailed on the 1st May from Gravesend, (arrived Sept. 17th) having on board 200 passengers and a  full cargo general merchandise. This ship is the property of Messrs Seymour, Peacock, and Co., and forms one of the passenger line of packets under the management of Messrs Shaw, Savill and Co. She is 1,683 tons register, being by far the largest ship ever dispatched to the New Zealand colonies. A circumstance worthy of note in the emigration trade in New Zealand is strikingly illustrated in the case of the Persia. of the passengers not more than about one-forth are steerage paying the lowest rate of fare. The remaining three-fourths are made up of chief, and intermediate cabin passengers, being  principally persons of capital large or small, induced to emigrate, not by the pressure of necessity, but from the conviction that they are there - in benefiting their own-interests. The superior character of the emigrants going to New Zealand has rarely been so forcibly exemplified as in the present instance. The Persia is a noble ship fitted up with a great deal of comforts and elegance. The following is a list of the chief cabin passengers:
