ARRIVAL OF THE NELSON

The Albion Company's clipper ship Nelson, from Glasgow, arrived off Otago Heads on the forenoon of December 25th, and was towed up to the anchorage off Deborah Bay at 8.15 p.m. Here she was met by the Customs authorities, and on Capt. Fullarton stating that several cases of measles and diptheria had occurred during the voyage out, it was decided not to clear the vessel in until next day. At the same time Capt. Fullarton stated that the last case of illness had been declared convalescent on November 21st, a period of 34 days, in which time all traces of the disease had been effectually stamped out, thanks to the supervision of Capt. Fullarton and Dr. Hyde, the surgeon in charge, whose efforts in controlling the epidemic proved eminently successful. At 10 a.m. on the 26th of December the Customs steam launch proceeded off to the Nelson, taking Capt. W. Thomson and D. McCallum, health officers, Mr. J.R.Monson, Customs surveyor, and Capt. P. Logan, marine superintendent to the Albion Shipping Company. We regret to state that through severe indisposition Dr. Drysdale, the medical officer of the local Board of Health, was prevented from being present. On reaching the ship the official party were met at the gangway by our old friend Capt. Fullarton, who promptly informed them of the state of affairs, and introduced Dr. Hyde, the surgeon superintendent. That gentleman having explained the state of affairs, the Commissioners decided to clear the vessel in, and the obnoxious yellow flag was promptly hauled down, to the evident satisfaction of both passengers and crew. The representatives of the Press, who were promptly alongside, were most courteously received by Capt. Fullarton, who kindly supplied them with ample details of the vessel's passage from Glasgow to Otago. From the very exhaustive report furnished by him, we find that the voyage from anchor to anchor has occupied 87 days, and from land to land 84 days-rather a long passage, it will be said, for so smart a ship as the Nelson admittedly is, and so competent a commander as our old friend Capt. Fullarton, who, as usual, has gained golden opinions from all classes of his passengers for the kind and constant attention he has displayed towards them. But this is easily explained by the fact that she met with little or no trade winds, and after passing the meridian of the Cape of Good Hope encountered very unsteady winds. The Nelson brings 52 passengers and 1850 tons of cargo, of which 800 tons is dead-weight and the remainder measurement goods. In addition to her cargo the Nelson brings three polled angus cattle- two bulls and a heifer, with 12 sheep, all of which have been under the supervision of Mr. Dagg. The cattle are superb specimens of their class, and are, we are told, consigned to the Hon. Mathew Holmes; while the sheep consist of southdown and Cheviot of the highest acknowledged strains. And it is indicative of the care displayed by Capt. Fullarton that the animals have arrived in such perfect condition.

SHIPPING TELEGRAMS
The measles is confined to the Northumberland's second-class and steerage passengers. Six cases were rather severe. The disease only appeared about three weeks ago. The cabin passengers were isolated, and with the ship will probably be released on Thursday.
