ARRIVAL OF THE ANTARES
Evening Post January 12th 1881

The barque Antares, 821 tons, Captain Lewis, was signalled early this morning, and was brought in to the anchorage in the powder ground by pilot Holms at 10a.m. She has made a long passage from London, occupying 118 days, which is attributable too meeting with a continuance of light winds and calms. She has been in the strait for a week, and had to beat through against a southerly breeze. There was nothing particulary worthy of note during the voyage. Her cargo is a miscellaneous one, and includes about 30 tons snider cartridges for the Government. She does not bring any passengers. The Antares was brought up the wharf this afternoon. W. & G. Turnbull & Co. are her agents.
