Part XXXI - Various
The Dunedinities were jubilant over the arrival of the s.s. Queen in the bay, and greeted her with a salute of 20 guns, and within six months she was joined by the s.s. Pirate, owned by the same firm. The General Government about the same time appeared on the scene with steamers also. Along the coastline both north and south, the favourite p.s. Geelong traded with great regularity. Soon she was joined by the p.s. Prince Albert and Ada and the s.s. Oberon. Nor were harbour requirements overlooked. the picturesque harbours were enlivened by the little screw steamers Pride of the Yarra and Victoria plying regularly between Dunedin and Port Chalmers, and making occasional runs to the Heads on the arrival of immigrant ships. The increase of shipping brought with it its train of disasters. Wrecks occurred at Stewart's Island and the Bluff; the barque Revival was stranded at Otago heads; the ship Henbury, from London, was burnt at Port Chalmers the day after her arrival. New River and Oamaru also contributed. The p.s Ada was wrecked at the Molyneux, and the crowning disaster was the total loss of the splendid new screw steamer Victory, in daylight, at Wickliffe Bay, on her first voyage from Otago to Melbourne.
