Departed London 5 Dec. 1861 and arrived Lyttelton, New Zealand 30 Mar. 1862.
The emigrant ship S.S. Victoria, Capt. Forss, arrived in
Lyttelton on Sunday morning after a rather protracted passage of 109 days from the
Downs. She lands her passengers in good health, who appear to be above the average
stamp of immigrants. The Victoria made a bad start, meeting with contrary winds in
the Channel, which caused her to be over 40 days before crossing the line. She was
afterwards detained by putting into Pernambuco for fresh water, the water in the casks on
board being unfit for use. She brings 139 adults passengers.
