ARRIVAL OF THE SHIP WANGANUI FROM LONDON
Evening Post Tuesday November 7th 1882

The NZS Company's fine ship Wanganui, 1077 tons, under command of Captain Watt, was signalled early this morning as being at the Heads, all well. She is reported as having left London on the 29th July. As will be seen by the list below (refer passenger list), she brings about 53 passengers. The wind being strong from the N W, she anchored at the Heads, but should beat in tomorrow morning, Pilot Holmes being on board

THE SHIP WANGANUI FROM LONDON
Evening Post Wednesday November 8th 1882

This vessel, which we mentioned yesterday as having anchored at the Heads, was taken in tow by the SS Tairoa this afternoon. The lateness of the hour at which she arrived prevents our giving her report tonight. The passengers, whose names we published yesterday, have all arrived in good health. The Wanganui is owned by the NZ Shipping Company, and is under command of Captain Watt.
