Ship: 997 tons
Sailed London29 March 1875 - arrived Lyttelton July 24 1875
This fine iron ship, commanded by
Captain Guthrie Jnr., chartered by the New Zealand Shipping Company, was signalled on
Friday. The wind was too light to make the heads and it was only on Saturday morning that
her number was shown. Shortly after 11 a.m. the Health Officer, Agents and reporters
proceeded down to the ship, some two miles outside the heads. It was found that all on
board were well, and the captain deciding to be towed, the steamer was made fast. Of the
vessel there is little to say except she had an excellent commodious poop and good cabins.
Her decks are lumbered up considerably with stock-houses for on her departure she had
eight bulls on board. These are destined for Auckland. Among the passengers are two
families names Lilley and Hunt, the men in which are engineers, who were sent out by Sir
Julius Vogel. The voyage, although long, has been a very pleasant one, as will be seen.
The ship brings few immigrant (eleven). She has a large cargo and came consigned to the
New Zealand Shipping Co.
