The STAR OF INDIA departed London on 30 July, 1874 and arrived in Wellington, on 
10 November, 1874, with Captain Holloway in command.

Transcribed from the Evening Post, 10 November 1874, Page 2 

Star of India, ship, 1004 tons, Captain Holloway, from London was worked into harbor this morning very skillfully by Pilot Holmes and
anchored a short distance from the wharf. She has made the passage out in 104 days and experienced fine weather throughout. 

The Star of India has had a remarkably fine, although rather long, passage of 104 days. She brings 374 immigrants, who are reported in
excellent health. Five deaths occurred during the passage, two being those of a father and child, the former committing suicide by jumping
overboard with the child in his arms.
