Transcribed from the Daily Southern Cross, 11 October 1864, Page 4



The ship Columbus, 1,277 tons, Captain Adie, arrived yesterday evening, and anchored off the North Head. She left the Downs on the 16th June, and took her final departure from Ushant on the 24th June Experienced light N E trades, and crossed the line on the 27th July, in 25 11 W. longitude. The S E trades proved moderate, and the meridian of the Cape was made on the 23rd August. From thence strong W. and S.W winds prevailed. She ran down her easting as far as 59 S, and passing to the south of Tasmania, sighted the North Cape on Saturday last. The barque Guadalette, hence, was spoken on the 4th instant, in longitude 163 10 E , latitude 34 S.

The Columbus was despatched by Messrs Green, Robinson, and Co. She is a fine large ship, and has good accommodation. Her commander, Captain Adie, has been presented with a testimonial by the passengers, as a token of their appreciation of his abilities as a mariner, and of the manner in which he has performed his duties. Most of the passengers appear to be in good health, and the ship is in a cleanly state.

The following is a list of her passengers and cargo.
