yesterday afternoon, after a pleasant passage of 98 days. She sailed from
Gravesend on the 13th October, and the Downs on the 15th. She brings about
40 first and second cabin passengers, amongst who, we notice the names of
our old friends Mr and Mrs St., Hill, who we are glad to hear, have arrived
in good health, after their visit to the mother country. She is one of
Messrs Shaw Savill and Co.’s Line of Packets, brings a full cargo of
merchandise, and is consigned to Messrs. W. Bowler Son & Co. the Wild Duck
has made a quick voyage to and from the Mother Country. She sailed from
Wellington on the 21st March 1861, and has only been absent ten months from
the port including a detention of nearly three months in England. We
understand that she will be laid on for London to load wool, immediately she
discharges her inward cargo.
