Her cargo consists chierfly of water-works plant for the Wainui-o-mata supply. She left Glasgow on the 5th of August, and has made a fair average passage. Owing to the N W breeze blowing, she had to anchor at the Heads, but will probably get in this evening. She brings about 20 passengers. Messrs Ktull & Co. are agents for this vesssel.

The Evening Post November 15th 1880

This barque, under command of Capt Greig, which we mentioned in our last issue as having arrived at the Heads, was towed into port at 4.30 yesterday afternoon by the SS Penguin. She left Glasgow on the 5th August, but owing to calms and waiting to adjust compasses, did not leave Cape Clear until the 16th; crossed the Equator on the 25th September, and passed the Cape of Good Hope on the 14th October; Cape Farewell was made on the 9th inst., and she was off the Heads on Friday evening, when Pilot Holmes boarded, but owing to the unfavourable weather had to anchoe her until yesterday. The voyage out has been uneventful and the passengers, whose names we published on Saturday, have arrived in good health. The Hannah Landles is quite a new vessel and one of the finest that has visited Wellington. She was entered at the Customs to-day.
