The ship Golconda, Captain Montgomery, from London, was signalled on Saturday, and was towed into harbour the same evening, by the steamer Tasmanian Maid. The Golconda is one of; Messrs. Shaw, Saville, and Co.'s line of packets, and has had a fair passage of 110 days from the Downs. The vessel has brought a large cargo, and a considerable number of passengers amounting altogether to 103 statute adults. Amongst the passengers we are glad to welcome back some Nelson settlers, viz., Mr. J. W. Saxton, Mrs. W. R. Nicholson and family, and Mr. Stratford and family. Most of the assisted immigrants have relatives or friends here, arid there are a great many children amongst the new arrivals, who will no doubt soon grow up into useful colonists. Three deaths occurred during the passage, viz., that of Mr. G. Frost, aged 24, who died of-consumption, on the 24th November; Thomas Jones; aged 26, who died of dysentry, on the 6th October, and Charles Jones, aged one year, son of the latter, who died of hooping cough, on the 12th December. Nelson Examiner, Dec. 28.
