Daily Southern Cross, 2 August 1862, Page 3 ARRIVAL OF THE 'BLUNDELL.'
The barque 'Blundell,' 529 tons, Captain Richard May Lean, arrived here yesterday, after a passage of 154 days from London. Sailed "from the Downs on the 16th February, with strong southerly and westerly gales, beating down channel. On the 21st February, about 20 miles S. W. off Scilly, earned away the iron tiller of the rudder. Bore up for the nearest port, Fowey, and arrived there on the 23rd. Executed repairs with all dispatch, and sailed on the 27th February, at 4 p m.  Testimonial signatures-

There were only 8 adult passengers, the other passengers, beside those who signed the testimonial, being John Thorns, John Sinclair Gilroy, and Wm. Craig, a child. We regret that the mortality has been great among the live stock on board the ' Blundell.' There were 10 merino sheep on board, for Mr. Walter Grahame, to which, reference has been made by advertisment in this paper. There is now nine sheep and one lamb. His Excellency the Governor had the following animals and birds on board : 6 fallow deer, 6 hares, 11 pheasants, and 9 partridges. Of these two deer remain a buck and a doe ; 1 hare a male ; and there are only 4 birds living. A doe gave birth to a fawn on board, but both died. It appeals that due precautions wore not taken by the shippers of the life stock for his Excellency. The deer were too confined, and there was no way of cleaning out the boxes in which they were placed without so disturbing them as to cause the creatures to injure themselves. The same remark applies to the hares and birds. No care was taken to have a person on board to feed them," a task which appears to have been performed by Captain Lean himself. The ' Blundell 1 is one of the famous old fleet of teak built East Indiamen, which, although 20 years in active use; is still in prime condition, and considering the weather and detention, has made a fair voyage. Her last passage to Honduras, with Captain Lean, was accomplished in 29 days from land to land.
