The Wellington Independent February 9th 1859

This fine Aberdeen Clipper, arrived from London on Sunday morning, after a passage of 108 days from the Downs, having experienced nothing but calms and light winds to the Equator and fine weather almost throughout. She brings a few cabin passangers and about 80 in the steerage, the majority of whom have arrived out to join their friends under the provincial Government Regulations. The passengers speak in high terms of Captain Stephen and the Surgeon, and we believe presented them with a flattering complimentary letter. The Kinnaird is a very fine ship of great beam, and showed herself to be a fast sailer during the few strong breezes experienced on the Voyage. We notice an importation by this ship of some pure Saxony Sheep, for Mr Purvis Russell's Station, consisting of five rams and seven ewes. The Kinnaird loads here for London.
