The steamship Albion left Port Chambers on Saturday, for Hokitika, Sydney and Japan. It was on 13th May, 1864 that she arrived from Glasgow and her cost to the company, at that time was £32,000. Her builders were Messrs Scott and Co., of Greenock, by whom the Aldinga and other steamers of similar character, were constructed, and it was by the Greenock Foundry Company that her engines were provided. The Albion will leave Hokitika with a full complement of passengers, on their way to Queensland, the Phoebe having, it is said, taken as many as 400 for the same destination. The new owners of the vessel are to join her at Sydney, prior to her proceeding to Japan.

Otago Daily Times, 9 October 1868, Page 2
The well-known clipper ship Beautiful Star, from London, arrived at the Heads yesterday morning, having made an excellent passage of 88 days from the Start. Pilot Kelly boarded and sailed her up against the ebb tide during the forenoon to the Quarantine Ground, where she brought up, in consequence of the wind falling light up. The tug Geelong proceeded down alongside of her in the afternoon, and would probably tow her up to a discharging berth during the evening. Capt. Lees who is still in command of this fine vessel, reports of the voyage that the Beautiful Star sailed from Gravesend on the 7th of July, and passed Start Point on the 12th. Light weather prevailed until falling in with the N.E. trades, when strong breezes were experienced for a few days. The Equator was crossed on the 11th of August. The S. E. trades were very indifferent, and lost in lat 22.30S. The meridian of Greenwich was crossed on the 31st August, and that of the Cape on the 5th of September. On the same day she encountered a heavy gale from E.N.E., which backed round to N.W., causing a high confused sea, which broke on board and smashed some acid cases stowed on deck, all of which were hove overboard for the safety of the ship, cargo, and passengers. Her easting was run down on the parallel of 50 deg, and was characterised by northerly and N.W. winds. The Snares were made on the 6th instant. Since then she had to beat against light N.E. winds. The Beautiful Star comes into port in excellent order, and on this trip she has brought sixteen cabin passengers, all in good health. The ship Schleswig Bride was spoken between Tasmania and the New Zealand coast, and again on the day after, rounding the Snares. The only land sighted during the voyage was the island of Madeira. An addition was made to the population on board by Mrs Keown giving birth to a son on the 27th ult. Both mother and child have since done well.

The 90 Chinamen who arrived by the Gothenburg on her last trip, reached Waiperi about a fortnight ago. For some time over thirty Chinamen have been at work on the Deep Stream, and have been very successful. One man, over fifty-seven years of age, left for China recently, carrying with him a considerable sum, earned during a two years' residence on the Waipori. This man was one of the party who bought Wylie's old claim. Some of the trade people have profited considerably by the recent influx- one having done a great stroke by hiring out to the Chinese a newly-erected stable as a sleeping room, at the rate of 6d a head each night.

The clipper ship Edward P. Bouverie, one of the finest vessels belonging to Messrs Patrick Henderson and Co. 's line of Clyde packets, arrived off the Heads from Glasgow on Tuesday evening, and was towed up to a discharging berth off Rocky Point by the Geelong at 2 a.m. on Wednesday. Her passengers, to the number of 235, equal to 201 statute adults, were brought to Dunedin by the p.s. Golden Age on her forenoon trip. Of the Bouverie's passage Captain Tilly reports that the ship left the Tail of the Bank off Greenock on the 5th of May, had light winds and variable weather down Channel, and took final departure from Cape Clear on the 11th. From thence to lat. 43 N., reached on the 15th, had a succession of westerly winds, the last three days being very heavy from W. to W.S.W. with high rolling seas. Moderate weather was then experienced to the N.E. Trades, which were light. The Equator was crossed on the 37th day out, in long. 26 W. The S.E. Trades were fair, and the Meridian of Greenwich was crossed on the 28th of June, and that of the Cape on the 2nd of July. Easterly gales and very high seas were then experienced for three consecutive days. Her easting for the moat part was run down in lat. 47 8., and with the exception of four days of westerly breezes, was characterised by variable and. indifferent winds. Between the longitudes of 37 and 103 E., several icebergs were sighted. She passed Tasmania on the 30th ult., when she met with a heavy S.S.E gale, which horsed her away to the northward. The gale continued until the 6th inst., when it hauled round to N.N.E , with a high confused sea. On the following day she passed between the Snares and the Traps. Westerly breezes then favoured her till making the Nuggets at 5.30 a.m. on the 9th. Light variables were then experienced to arrival. The general health of all was good throughout the passage, no infectious disease whatever having occurred. There was, however, one death — that being Mrs Agnes Stewart, of puerperal fever, on the 18th of July. This did not, however, decrease the population of the ship, as on the passage there were no leas than eight births, as follows :— May 22nd, Mrs Gray, of a son; 24th, Mrs M'Donald, of a daughter ; June 2nd, Mrs Greig, of a daughter ; 22nd, Mrs Thomson, of a son ; 25th, Mrs M'Glashan, of a daughter ; July 8th, Mrs Stewart, of a son ; 15th, Mrs M'Donnell, of a daughter; 30th, Mrs Monro, of a daughter. This, we believe, is the largest number of births that has occurred on board any vessel from home to Otago, and we hope the young Bouvevies will prosper in this their adopted land. The passengers as a whole look strong and healthy. On arrival they presented Captain Tilly and the chief mate with testimonials expressive of their kind sentiments towards those gentlemen.

The clipper ship May Queen, from London, arrived off the Heads on Tuesday afternoon, was boarded by Pilot Stevens, and towed up over the ebb last evening by the Geelong to the Quarantine Ground, where she brought up for the purpose of discharging her powder.
