Otago Witness � Saturday February 11. 1854 page 2
Since our last we have to announce the arrival of the "Stately," one of Messrs. Willis and Co.'s Lone of Packets, from London direct. She anchored at the heads on Sunday afternoon, after a pleasant and quick passage, having left Gravesend on the 29th October, the Lizard on the 3rd November, and sighted Stewart's Island on the 2nd instant, making 92 days from land to land. We are glad to see that the "Stately" is still commanded by our old friend Captain Ginder, whom we most heartily congratulate on seeing in Otago once more, This is his third voyage to our settlement within the last three years. It is only nine months since Captain Ginder left Wellington on his homeward voyage, having sailed on the 1st May with a cargo of wool, since when he landed the cargo in London, loaded again, and is now discharging here. The "Stately" has brought upwards of 60 passengers, all of a superior class, to this port; among others. the two clergymen, The Rev. Messrs. Will and Bannerman, for whom we have been so anxiously looking.
