ARRIVAL OF THE BARQUE MARIA
New Zealand Spectator and Cook's Strait Guardian July 1st 1863
The ship Maria, Captain Tuelon, from London, arrived in port last Saturday, after a passage of 107 days. She left Gravesend on the 6th March, was detained in the Channel thirteen days by adverse winds, experienced bad weather to the Line, and from thence had a fine passage to Van Dieman's land, and a rough one from thence to Wellington. An accident occurred during the voyage to one of the seamen, who fell from the rigging, and afterwards died from the injuries he sustained. The ship brings a large cargo, several passengers, and is consigned to levin & Co. The passengers presented a testimonial to Captain Tuelon in acknowledgement of his kindness and attention to them during the voyage.
