The Dunkeld, from London, has brought, in addition to a few regular passengers, about 22 immigrants under the assisted passage regulations. She had light winds on leaving England, which protracted the voyage to the Cape, but thence to the meridian of the Leuwin fine fair breezes gave a prospect of an early termination of the passage. There, however, fresh east and north-east winds having commenced, continued so persistently that the latter stage of the voyage was tedious, and even after making Cape Borda the Gulf was passed through by tack and tack to the roads.
Although the Dunkeld left London on June 16, it was the 19th before she quitted the Downs and the 26th before she passed the Eddystone. On August 2, in long. 27° 30' W., the vessel crossed the line, and on August 29 the meridian of Greenwich in 33° of S. lat. ; on reaching 39° S., 58° 42* E., severe weather so hardly used the ship that she lost the greater part of the bulwark planking. The sea broke over the starboard side, staving the cuddy doors. The cabin was filled with water, and a considerable quantity went below. Loose gear was washed away, and a lot of the main channel plates were broken off short. Fortunately the weather moderated shortly afterwards, and the damages were temporarily repaired. The master of this vessel was here several years back in command of the Alchymist.
