The favourite clipper ship 'Ida Ziegler,' Captain A. Reynolds, fetched her anchorage in the harbour at noon yesterday, after one of her usually rapid passages from England. She was signalled at 430 p.m. on Thursday, described at 6 30 ; and Captain Burgess, port master, boarded her off Tni at eleven p.m., working her up all night with light winds. Bought up at seven a.m.. yesterday, off the Rough buoy, on account of ebb tide and calm, and got underweigh again at eleven, running up with a fresh sea breeze. The ' Ida Ziegler ' left the docks on the 17th August, and Plymouth on the 24th, experiencing light winds and fine weather down the channel. ...The ship is in g. clean and creditable condition, and is sufficient evidence of the attention of her commander and officers. The general health of the passengers was good. There were two births on board The passengers speak highly of Captain Reynolds's conduct on the voyage. The following testimonial was presented to him before entering the harbour

The 'Ida' Ziegler' took on board yesterday, the greater portion of her passengers, including invalids troops. She now lies off the wharf in first rate trim and there is little doubt she is one of the finest ships that has ever loaded home from this port. She will probably sail this afternoon.

The natives now on board the 'Ida Zeigler,'  are under charge of Mr Jenkins, native interpreter.
