ARRIVAL OF THE SNARESBROOK- WELLINGTON
Wellington Independent September 9th 1859

The barque Snaresbrook, one of Messrs Lidget and Sons Line of New Zealand Packets, arrived in this harbour on Tuesday last, from London, after a passage of 93 days. She has experienced very boistrous weather during the voyage, which nevertheless has been compartively quick one, she having arrived in New Zealand before several vessels that had left London previously to her sailing. The Snaresbrook appears to be a fine vessel, and has arrived in port remarkably clean. She has the appearance of only being recently painted, although we understand it has not been touched since leaving the London Docks. She brings a full cargo for Wellington and Napier; but only one passenger. An apprentice named Francis Muir died during the voyage of consumption. The Snaresbrook proceeds to Napier immediately after her cargo for this port has been landed, and we understand will load wool for London.
