Messrs. Shaw, Saville, and Co., despatched from Gravesend on the 3rd instant the passenger-liner Evening Star, for Otago, with a full cargo and 130 passengers, a large number of whom were sent out under the auspice of the Provincial Government.
A large number of friends of the passengers, and other visitors connected with the colony, assembled on board at Gravesend. Suitable addresses were delivered by the Rev. Mr. McGillivray, Mr Birch, the London agent for the Otago Government, Mr Thos. D. Currie, the secretary to the emigration scheme, and others.
