The SS & A Co's ship Invercargill left London on the 15th October and Gravesend the next day, and was off the Lizards on the 18th; crossed the Equator on the 7th November, and arrived off the Heads on Saturday night about 10 o'clock, after a smart passage of 77 days. Experienced about the average run of weather during the voyage. The Invercargill was towed in by the Dispatch yesterday morning, and anchored in the stream at 7:30. She brought 16 passengers, who have arrived in good health, and speak very highly of the attention paid to them by Captain Muir and his officers.

Messrs Turnbull & Co are agents for the ship.
