The fine steamer Omeo, Captain John McLean, anchored in our harbour a little after midnight on Wednesday morning, from Melbourne via Otago. The Omeo is a very handsome iron boat built in 1858, at Gatteshead-upon-Tyne; she measures 240 feet in length, registers 605 tons without her engine room, and has auxiliary screw power equal to 100 Horses. Her lower masts and rigging are of iron, and the mizen mast does double duty as funnel to the left of the after saloon. The fittings of the Omeo are the most complete and comfortable of any steamer which has yet visited us. Her main saloon is amidships, out of the motion, and her sleeping accommodation for passengers cannot be surpassed, she carries beneath every tiling .300 tons of coal, and has room besides for 500 tons of cargo, part of her stowage room being constructed as an immense tank into which 300 tons of water may be pumped at pleasure as ballast. The Omeo put ashore 200 tons of cargo, 1,100 sheep, with 30 passengers, in six hours at Port Chalmers. She returns this afternoon to Melbourne via Otago, and will visit this port next month, having a contract to make three trips with stock to Otago.

The Victory, the fifth boat of the Inter-colonial Royal Mail packet Company's fleet, (says the Lyttelton Times) made her first appearance at Lyttelton.... She was built by Messrs. Denny, of Dumbarton. She is 215 feet long, with 27 feet breadth of beam, and 16 feet and 6 inches depth of hold. The "Victory" has steeple-engines, built by Denny, of 350 horse-power and fitted with Hamilton's patent governor, are fixed. The stream is superheated by Partridge's patent, and a donkey engine, which is fixed to work the machinery on deck, would alone impel the ship at the rate of one knot an hour....
There was some 15 or 20 passengers by the "Egidia" who took their passages in the "Storm Bird" for the Bluff, and the Government requiring a further number if hands on the roads in the South the "Storm Bird" has been engaged to convey them to Invercargill. She is to start on Wednesday next. Messrs. Greer and Co., positively refused to make any reduction in the usual rate of passage; but the "Storm Bird" takes the passage at a reduction of nearly half that rate.
February 9 1861 page 9
The long expected coasting steamer Lyttelton arrived after all at her port of destination, Lyttelton, on Sunday afternoon, more than sixteen months after leaving London. The history of her long voyage is nothing more than a record of slow progress (to be expected as a matter of course in a steamer of her size sailing out) and many long detentions at ports where she had to put in for supplies or fittings. The length of the Lyttelton is not greater than that of the Planet, so that she will work easily in the rivers but she having half as much more beam, and something like three times the stowage room. Her engines comprising two oscillating cylinders, each of a nominal power of 12 1.2 horses, but combined working up to 1000 horse power. The boiler is tubular and fitted with two furnaces, takes up a very small space fore and aft, and leaves besides plenty of space for coal bunkers &c., on each side. This iron boat has very wide hatches. The Lyttelton made a passage of 36 hours from Wellington under steam. We regret to learn that there is an uncertainty as to her disposal. a question having arisen between the Steam Navigation Company, who ordered the boat, and Messrs. Cookson, Bowler, & Co., through whose agency she was procured.

We learn that the Oberon, which left this port on the 12th instant, met the Pirate in Invercargill. The Pirate left there in the 14th, and will thus have the means of forwarding to England correspondence from Otago to the above dates.
