Shipping News 

Arrived Oct. 8 - Robert Henderson, 552 tons, Logan, from Glasgow, with general cargo. 369 passengers 

This beautiful Clipper Ship arrived at the Heads on Saturday, at 9, a.m., after one of her usual rapid passages' this being the third voyage she has made from the Clyde to this port with Immigrants. She left the Tail of the Bank on Thursday evening, the 11th July, and experienced fine weather to the Line, which was crossed on the 31st day; the Cape was passed on the 30th, and the Snares was sighted on Friday last, thus occupying 84 days from land to land, and 85 days from port to port. The Barometer went down to 28 on one occasion in the South Seas. The greatest distance made during the course of one week being 1,750 nautical miles. Only one casualty being the death of one of the females from consumption. A series of concerts were given during the fine weather, and amongst other startling novelties a band of Ethiopian Serenaders caused much amusement. Dr. Somerville was the Surgeon. The following is a list of the passengers.
