ARRIVAL OF THE FERNGLEN.

The New Zealand Shipping Co.'s chartered ship Fernglen, Captain Fraser, arrived off Nelson this morning with 250 Government immigrants for Nelson and the West Coast. She left Plymouth on 12th October, and has, therefore, made a quick run of 82 days. Definite information having been received by the Government that there was no demand for the immigrants at Nelson or the West Coast, instructions were telegraphed this afternoon from the Immigration Office for the ship not to stop at Nelson, but to come on immediately to Wellington. The 140 immigrants who were bound for the West Coast of the South Island will be forwarded instead to Wanganui, and the remainder will easily be absorbed by Wellington. We understand that all is well on board.

THE FERNGLEN.

The Fernglen arrived in harbor yesterday morning from Nelson, having been sent on from that port in consequence of her immigrants not being required in the district. She left Nelson on Friday morning. The Fernglen, which is chartered by the New Zealand Shipping Company, made a smart passage of 81 days from London, with 225 immigrants and 6 cabin passengers for Wellington. The passage was an uneventful one. There was little or no sickness during the voyage, only three deaths among children having occurred. There was also one birth. The immigrants are well satisfied with the treatment they received on board, and have presented Captain Frazer and Dr. Sproule, surgeon-superintendent, with flattering testimonials. Captain Frazer reports leaving Plymouth on 12th October, and experienced southerly winds for two days, when the wind veered to the N.W., and carried the vessel to 34 deg. north latitude. It then veered to the W.S.W., and blew a hard gale with terrific squalls for 24 hours, when it moderated, the vessel passing the Island of Madeira on the 21st. The Equator was crossed on 7th November in long. 32 deg. W. The easting was run down between the parallels of 43 and 47, the wind being light; sighted CapeLeuwin on 21st December, and Cape Farewell on 1st January, arriving at Nelson on the morning of 2nd January. Four vessels were spoken on the passage out, none of which were bound for this colony.
