The Star July 5 1886
Port Chalmers, July 4
The Shall, Savill and Albion Company's steamer Arawa, Captain Stuart, from Plymouth, via the Cape and Hobart, arrived off Otago Heads bringing 2000 tons cargo and 140 passengers for New Zealand ports. Two deaths have occurred on the voyage, that of John Heckson, aged 22 years, from consumption, on June 14 and John Ahern, a baby, on the next day from pneumonia. The passage from Plymouth occupied 41 days 15 hours and 28 minutes. She sailed 223 miles more than she did on the last voyage from Capetown to Hobart. The Shall, Savill and Albion Company have issued orders that their steamers, in future, shall be sailed on the rhomb-line instead of the composite great circle in order to avoid bad weather far south. Her average speed was 13.6 knots. She left the Heads last night for Auckland direct. Passengers: For Lyttelton: Saloon Mrs Mathews
Second cabin Mr P. Cochrane and Mr Turner; third cabin Mr and Mrs Cummings and family (3), Miss Biondell, Mr W. Derbyshire, J. Fraser, J. Harrold, F. Humphries, P. Maloney, J. Serrards.
