The Iron clipper ship Warwick, 1,105 tons, Captain D Smith, made the harbour on Monday, May 6, from London, with a large cargo and 75 passengers. The Warwick is one of Messrs Shaw, Savill and Co.'s line of passenger vessels, and comes consigned to Mr David Nathan. She reports having left Gravesend on the 15th of January last, and sighted Stewart's Island on the 25th of April, thirty-four days from the Cape, and 99 days from London, fourteen days of which must, however, be taken off the passage, leaving 85 days for the run from the Channel to New Zealand. The supply of water being very short and the passengers' flour proving of such an inferior quality that ship's stores had to be substituted, Captain Smith deemed it prudent to call at Otago heads for a fresh supply before completing the passage.
A painful accident occurred on the 22nd March, resulting in the loss of the second officer of the ship. It appears that when the vessel was some 5° east of the Cape, and running between 11 and 12 knots an hours, with a heavy sea on and night very dark, decreased was holding on to one the sheets in the performance of his duty, when it slipped, and drew him over the vessel's side. He was much respected.
Dr H Edward Harrison arrived in medical charge of the passengers, and reports no sickness of moment during the passage. On the 18th March, Ann, wife of Samuel Husband, gave birth to a female child; and on the 22nd of April, Louisa, wife of John Hutchinson, was delivered of a male child.
