The Hindostan

The N.Z F. Co.'s fine iron ship Hindostan arrived in harbour yesterday morning from London, after a fine weather passage of 106 days. The ship is under the command of Captain Peek, late of the Beth Shan and others. She brings a general cargo, and a number of Government immigrants. The Hindostan has arrived in harbour in a most cleanly condition, and all the passengers speak very highly of the attention shown to them by Captain Peek and his officers. The ship has a very neat saloon fitted with every comfort. Captain Burgess piloted the ship up the harbour. Dr. Philson, the health officer, after inspecting the immigrants and vessel, gave a clean bill of health. Of the passage out Captain Peek reports as follows :— Left London on September 12th, and landed the pilot off Dartmouth on the 22nd...

Breach of Merchant Shipping Act — Alexander Murphy, John Gartrall, Nicholas Cochrane, John Russell, Richard Scudder, John Duffiey, were charged with a breach of the above Act by continued disobedience of of lawful commands on board the ship ' Hindostan ' on her voyage from London to Auckland. Prisoners pleaded not guilty. Mr. Hesketh conducted the prosecution. — Robert Peek, master of the ship 'Hindostan,' deposed that he arrived in Auckland on Sunday, 28th December. Prisoners were able seamen on board. (Articles produced.) On the 28th December, hearing a disturbance on deck, he came out of his cabin and found prisoners quarrelling with the officers. He ordered them to their proper places, but they refused, and used threatening language. The prisoner Murphy said there would be murder on board yet. On the morning of the 2nd January, witness went on to the quarter-deck, and found prisoners stripping off their clothes to flight. He ordered them, forward and they refused to go, and remained where they were. — Prisoners Murphy, Scudder, and Gartrall cross-examined, without eliciting anything of importance. — Frederick William Gardiner, second officer of ship ' Hindostan,' proved that, on the 28th of December, the boatswain gave certain orders to the men at the braces, when Scudder called him very foul names. The boatswain and Scudder had a tussel. The other prisoners came aft, and interfered. Witness ordered them forward. They refused to go, and remained where they were, using threatening language. They evidently intended to commit an assault on witness and the other officers. Murphy said, " When blood is flying about, I'll let some out too."— On Friday, the 2nd of January, prisoners were at the boatswain's cabin. The captain ordered them away, but prisoners refused. Quiet was not restored until the police came on board. Prisoner Gartrall put himself in a fighting attitude, and witness was compelled to knock him down. The others, with the exception of Scudder, rushed aft, and threatened to thrash him. Cochrane was the worst of the lot. Robert Tower, chief officer of the ship ' Hindostan,' gave corroborative evidence. He another stated that he had never met a, worse lot of men than the prisoners were. — The witness was also cross-examined by prisoners. — Edward Ross, boatswain, was also examined, but his evidence only corroborated that of the previous witnesses. — Pilcher Austin, A.B ; and Harry Hall Dickson, purser of the ship Hindostan; George Rowe, a passenger ; Henry Pope, of H.M. Customs; and George H. Skipper, ordinary seaman, were examined for the defendants, and gave unimportant evidence. — His Worship said it was inconceivable the number of offences which were logged against the seamen of the 'Hindostan.' It was a pity that the ship had not fallen in with a man-of- war, and got the prisoners well flogged. — Prisoners stated that they were in the dock only because they would not attend church on board the Hindostan.—  The Bench sentenced Alex. Murphy, John Gartrall, Nicholas Cochrane, John Russell, and Richard Scudder, to 4 weeks, and John Duffiey to 14 days imprisonment with hard labour.
