Took the ship Warwick in tow off Sinclair Head at 11 this morning, and brought her into harbor, arriving at Queen's Wharf at 1 p.m. She left the east India Docks on November 12th. During a heavy gale on 30th January one of the sheep pens was washed away, and a valuable sheep was washed into the lea scuppers and severely injured. The Warwick was shipping heavy sea at the time. The Snares were sighted on the 17th February. Sighted the Nuggets the next morning. The Warwick brings thirty-three valuable Lincoln sheep for Mr Walker, of Cambridge, Waikato. During the voyage the Warwick spoke the barque Deerfoot, from Cardiff to Canterbury, on 8th December, in 18.47 N., 21.s 8W. There was not a single case of sickness during the passage.


A notable event has occurred today. The first Press cable despatch has been received her...  This is indeed a note worthy event of being marked as a red-letter day....
