    Voyage Report 
    • KAPUNDA.-The Kapunda, from Plymouth the 21st Novcmber, has made a splendid run of seventy-six days, bringing 343 assisted immigrants. She has had one death (an infant) and three births during the passage, which has been a remarkably fine one. Sho experienced heavy weather in the chops of the Channel from S.W. to W.S.W., which lasted for ten days. The N.E. trades proved very fair, and the equator was crossed on the 17th Decem- ber, in longitude 27-34 W. The S.E. trades proved fair both in distance and force, and the meridian of the Cape of Good Hope was passed on the 8th January. She made her easting on a mean parallel of 47' 8., with fine N.W. winds, but attended with a con- tinuance of dense fog. On the passage, R.. Mills, an ordinary seaman, fell from the foretopmast crosstrees. In his descent he struck the foreyard arm, then went overboard, and was seen to sink abreast of the mizzen rigging. A boat was got ready, and the ship rounded to, but no signs of the unfortunate man could be seen. A very heavy sea was running at the time. The ship Hurunui, from London to Wellington, was signalled on 27th November, in latitude 43 N , longitude 13 W.

    Voyage Report 
    • THE KAPUNDA'S IMMIGRANTS.-The whole of the immigrants per ship Kapunda, which arrived on Monday last, 343 in number, have been landed from the ship. Many of them have joined their friends, and between 60 and 70 of the remainder have accepted engagements, and are now on their way up the country to their several situations. The immi- grants comprise tradesmen of all descriptions mechanics, engineers, bakers, gardeners, farm labourers, brickmakers, painters, &c. Free passes have been issued to these people for the following places :-Mittagong, Goulburn, Yass, Bowning,New castle, Singleton, Muswellbrook, Murrurundi, Wol- longong, Clarence River, Orange, and Blaney. In- timation has been forwarded by telegram to the benches of magistrates at these various places of the expected arrival of these immigrants, in order that proper provision maybe made for their re- ception. There were only some six or seven of the single women open to engagement, and they were all hired almost immediately after their arrival at the depot. The Kapunda is said to have arrived in excel- lent order ; her fittings and all the arrangements on board are considered superior to those of any immi- grant ship that has ever arrived in this harbour, and the excellent management and discipline enforced by Dr. Goode is highly spoken of. The immigrants, before the close ot the voyage, presented an address to Captain Adye, in which they express their appre- ciation of that gentleman's skill and kindness, and also of the courtesy of Mr. Anderson and Mr. Gemno, the chief and second officers.
