Reference: Papers Past

Invercargill's signals was made betimes on the 17th inst., and smart attention being accorded her by the tug Koputai, she was towed in by noon, and having ten tons of powder on board, brought up in the usual place off Pulling Point. One of the fine vessels of the Albion Co.'s fleet, the Invercargill his made the run out within average time, and is in first rate order all over clean on deck and trim aloft. She is still commanded by Captain Muir, and has brought a large cargo, amounting in the aggregate to 1900 tons, of which 600 tons are dead weight, iron, cement etc. Forty-two passengers have come with the ship, and so far as it is possible for landsfolks to enjoy a sea passage, that which they have just concluded, was anything but unpleasant to them. They received every attention at the hands of Captain Muir and his officers, and good fellowship generally prevailed. According to the master's private log, the Invercargill sailed from Gravesend on the evening of May 19th. ...
The Invercargill made a very excellent passage as regards time, 88 days from port to port, and 81 from land to land. It was also a fine weather one throughout.
