Port Chalmers - A large number of horses arrived by a shipment on board the steamer Queen, which berthed alongside the only apology for a jetty which is accessible, and by the arrival from town of others intended for shipment by the Airedale. The majority of them were a heavy stamp of dray horse, intended to be landed at Manukau for the Auckland market. The necessary fodder for the trip was brought down from town by the road in about a score of large drays, but of course it was not possible for them to proceed alongside the vessel. The jetty is only capable of admitting one horse at a time, which one horse has the privilege of impeding the whole passenger traffic of the port steamers, three of which disc hare and ship passengers at frequent intervals during the day. Including them, there have occasionally been seven steamers berthed by some means or other alongside this jetty, during the last two days. From sixty to seventy vessels arrive at Port Chalmers every month, and nearly half ten number are steamers; Where is the marine engineer, and where is the money that was voted six months ago for the erection of the pier at Port Chalmers?

The Alhambra sailed on Saturday afternoon with 6084 ounces of gold, and 227 passengers the list of cabin passengers including several well known residents of Dunedin. The number of passengers proceeding to Melbourne, it will be noticed, has of late undergone some increase. The fares, it ought to be known, are unprecedentedly low.

The barque Bengal, from Welshpool, was towed up on Saturday afternoon. She had fine weather from the 17th, when she sailed, until Friday, when a tremendous gale from the S.W., with a very heavy sea, was experienced in the Straits. During its prevalence, a heavy sea struck the ship, starting the rudder, carrying away some of the bulwarks, and doing other damage. The sheep pen on deck also gave way, and to preserve the stock Capt, Sivier converted the cabin into a temporary shelter for them. Notwithstanding the utmost attention there was a loss, in consequence of this weather, of 44 head of cattle, and one horse. The ship Lady Young, which has since been towed up left the same port three days before, and the Dutch ship Hendrick Ambacht had sailed about ten days previously.
The brig Our Hope, one of the monthly packets consigned to Messrs Tickle and Co;, arrived on Saturday morning, having had variable weather and one gale, during which she lost 70 pigs out of 113 shipped.

THE SHIP LADY MILTON.� SEA WAGES.
Captain Thomas Houston, the master of the ship Lady Milton, lying in the Victoria Dock, London, appeared before Mr Paget, to answer four summonses, taken out by Robert Ferguson, Charles Elmere, Jacob Fell, and Peter Bogan, seamen, for balances of wages earned on a voyage from London to New Zealand and back. ...

Otago Witness, 27 February 1864, Page 13
We extract the following from the New Zealand  Examiner :� "Several shipments of English field singing birds have been made lately by Mr John Morrison, agent for New Zealand. By the Lady Milton, which sailed from the East India docks on the 30th ultimo, a considerable number of larks, linnets, goldfinches, &c., as well as a select quantity of live game, including two deer, which were the gift of Lord Petre, were shipped on account of the Provincial Government. The shipment was prepared by Mr Bartlett, of the Zoological Gardens, and the care and attention during the voyage of these was assigned to a young man from the gardens. The Grasmere, from Glasgow, with assisted and nominated emigrants, took out a similar lot of birds and game, the latter including, as we observe from the Glasgow 'Daily Mail,' of Friday last, some grouse, pheasants, and rabbits, which had been presented by several gentlemen in Scotland, In both cases an ample supply of suitable food was put on board, and every other possible arrangement for their safe transport was made prior, to the sailing of the respective vessels."

Otago Witness, 12 April 1900, Page 29
Obituary. I have this week to record the death of another of the old identities in the person of Mrs Mary Ann Sweeney, relict of the late Mr Robert Sweeney, who predeceased her by 14 years. She peacefully passed away on April 3, at the residence of her stepson, Robert Sweeney, jun. She came to New Zealand in the Lady Milton, in the early sixties, being a fellow passenger of Sir Robert Stout. She was twice married, but had no family. Her former husband's name was Donovan, better known as Dr Donovan. She was a native of Chevely, Berkshire, England. Being a member of the Church of England, the last rites were performed by the Rev. Mr Christian. Deceased was 73 years of age.

Otago Witness, 18 January 1905, Page 59
Mr Thomas Allchin " Old Tom" as he was familiarly known for the last 25 years, was taking his annual holiday at the Coast at Akatore when an attack of pneumonia laid him low on Friday. He gradually grew worse, and passed away on Wednesday afternoon. A native of Kent, born in 1836, the deceased saw life in many parts. He roamed the seas, finding his way to the Crimea, and fighting at Balaclava; then later again being an active participant in the Indian mutiny. There he sustained a bullet wound in the leg, causing a lameness in after life. The bullet, by the way, was never extracted. Being invalided Home he returned to his trade until emigrating to New Zealand in the ship Lady Milton in 1864. For years then the sea. and his trade claimed his attention alternately. He was connected with the early history of printing in Otago, having been with Watson in the Guardian days, Joseph Mackay through most of that gentleman's ventures, Whitcombe and Tombs and others. About 1872 he joined the Bruce Herald staff; set up in business as job printer in Milton in 1899. Through his marriage in London in 1860 to Miss Edwards (who predeceased him by nine years) there was issue in the person of Mrs Joseph Bremner, who is left to mourn the loss.

Timaru Herald, 23 July 1864, Page 4
Daily Times, July 10. Shocking Death In Dunedin. � Between twelve o'clock oil Sunday night and one o'clock on Monday morning a man of the name of Nicholas Cowan, was found dead m his bedroom m the Provincial Hotel. He was a recent arrival m town, being only landed from the Queen of India on Thursday last. Yesterday afternoon an inquest was held on the body of deceased by the Coroner at the Provincial Hotel. The following evidence was taken: � Henry Towndrow: I arrived in Dunedin on Thursday last, per ship Queen of India, from London. I recognise the deceased as a fellow passenger of mine. I have seen very little of him since our arrival, but from his appearance I thought he was a weakly man on board ship. He brought his wife and child with him to this country. He was quite temperate on board ship. 1 saw him last at the Provincial Hotel on the evening of Sunday, the 17th inst. ..The Coroner said he had examined the papers, and found that deceased ; was a tailor by profession, was a native of Newcastle- on -Tyne, and had come to the country with his wife and child. Benjamin Britton: I am a police constable. About a fortnight since I was requested by a friend of mine at Waikouaiti, who is sister-in-law to the deceased, to meet him on his arrival here, and give him money to take him on to Waikouaiti. I met him on Thursday last when he landed, and gave him �12. I have seen him several times since, and he was frequently the worse for liquor. He never complained to me of illness. I saw him on Sunday afternoon between three and four o'clock. He appeared to be quite well, but had taken too much liquor. Edward Hunt: I am a legally qualified medical practitioner, residing in Dunedin. I have this day made a post mortem examination of the body of the deceased, and observed no marks of external violence. I opened the chest, and found the left lung adherent to the side of the chest, and showing signs of long standing disease. The cause of death was effusion and congestion of the brain, which must have been of some standing; 1 have no doubt the alcohol deceased had taken immediately before his death had hastened the fatal result The Jury returned a verdict finding that the deceased died from natural causes. � Daily Times, July 19.

An engraving of a picture of Port Chalmers, painted by Captain Thomas Robertson, of the Marine Board, and especially engraved for the Otago Witness. [I believe the caption is a should read Thomas not John. In the next edition Capt. Thomas Robertson is credited]

    Port Chalmers being the port at which all the large vessels engaged in trade with this Province of Otago load and discharge. The harbor is a safe and commodious one well -sheltered from the prevailing winds, and affords secure anchorage during the most violent gales. The steamers of the numerous fleet which is engaged in the Otago trade with Australia and the other Provinces, enter at all hours of the day and night with perfect safety. Approaching Port Chalmers from the sea, the landscape does not appear very inviting. Dark barren and lofty headlands falling precipitous to the water's edge. On the south side, and a little up the harbor, is a small Maori village. Some of the men - and many of them as well as the women are half-castes - are employed as boatmen in the pilot service; and a skilful and intrepid crew they are. The old chief Tairoa died a few months ago.
    The town itself is snugly situated at the end of one of the bights in the harbor. There are several good stores, a deep water jetty. There is now a good metalled road from the Port to Dunedin...
