Miscellaneous Shipping

The HESPERUS
The accounts to hand of this vessel induced people to be on the alert when she had been 65 days out, for it was considered not a matter of improbability that she would turn up in that time. As each day broke there was a good look out, but no sign of the clipper was discovered until Sunday 10th, when of course the telegraph being unavailable she hove in sight with a northerly wind. The signalman with his unerring telescope made her out to be a large ship standing into the east-ward, but the heavy squalls so completely hid her from view that her identity was not proved, as she reached a way out of sight to the west-ward. When the Royal Shepherd arrived she reported a very large vessel, but even then it was not certain whether or not it was the Hesperus or the Ralston. Towards midday the aneroid still fell, and a heavy rolling sea with obscured horizon prevailed. There were several anxious watchers, some of whom had been there for a week, but when in the heavy squall to the westward the upper gear of a large ship was sighted there were few who cared to take the cruise to board her. The pilot, Customs officer, and Press reporter took charge of the Lurline, and in a lull let go from the jetty.

It was rough work, as occasionally the heavy squalls induced the forestay sail of the Hesperus to come down and the mainsail to be close-reefed ; but as the ship headed in for the roads it was soon perceived someone was in charge who knew where to pick out a good berth. Even in the dull cold wretchedness of heavy squalls the people in the boat were prepared to admire the contour of about the most magnificent ship we have ever seen here. It was perhaps better to observe her in a seaway, when the proportions of hull were properly shown. Long tapering spars and a great spread of canvas skewed at once her proportions. Years ago we were satisfied to consider as clippers such vessels as the Harwich, Irene, Kangaroo, and others. They were in their day and generation fine ships ; but the Hesperus is beyond a doubt the handsomest which we have ever seen here. Some have been superior in model, others in appointments; but this ship embodies everything which is necessary to render life at sea pleasant and agreeable. The fact of boarding her during a gale would doubtless show to disadvantage her many capabilities, for there was little time available to overhaul the most complete appointments. Externally from a very short distance she looked about an ordinary thousand - ton ship, with tall tapering masts towering aloft till skysails fore and aft were reached. She has double top gallant yards, double topsails, iron masts, and steel yards, and although it was heavy weather when she was boarded, the immense fabrication on the water moved but little when at anchor outside the bell buoy. With that nautical knowledge for which Captain Legoe is proverbial, he dropped his ship into an excellent position, and after struggling with the heavy squalls under close canvas, the Press boat succeeded in ranging well into her waist. Mr. Begg (the chief officer), and Sir. Penfound (the second) were at hand.
A warm welcome was accorded, and the passengers raised a ringing cheer as the pilot stepped over the gangway. The captain is better in appearance than when last here, but the anxiety of a night's bad weather in the gulf had so affected him that he elected to remain on board rather than rough the passage to the jetty. He reports leaving the India docks on Thursday, February 12, at 18 ft. 12 in. draft of water ; adjusted compasses at Greenwich, and on Saturday morning towed to the Nore, Remained there wind bound till Monday, when the tug was fast again and towed to Fairlee. Cast off the steamer at 6 a.m. and proceeded to beat down Channel. On Friday, the 20th, reached Plymouth, and embarked remainder of the people. On Sunday, February 22nd, was towed outside the breakwater, and having a fair breeze from N.W. made all sail. 23rd and 24th, fine weather and fair wind with several ships in company. On the 25th, as the wind increased the mainsail was furled and topsails reefed. There was a fearful head sea, and the starboard headboards were washed away and the vessel shipped some water, but at midnight the weather moderated, and although there was a confused sea the reefs were shaken out Thursday, the 26th, was another heavy weather day. The vessel was again under reduced canvass, and such a strain was put on the fore trestle trees that it was necessary to rig a Spanish cap to prevent the foretopmast going. On Friday, the 27th, the crew and officers were engaged setting up the gear, and at 1.30 the work was sufficiently accomplished to keep the ship in her course. Saturday, February 28, brought similar weather, and yet no chance of noting how the new ship could sail. The 1st broke with heavy weather, and the ship was kept under easy sail, but on the 2nd the wind dropped, and left a calm in lat. 43° N., long.10° W. Then followed light pleasant weather. On the 5th when going along at a good rate the ship struck a floating piece of timber, about 50 feet long by three in girth, fair across the cutwater, and the shock made her vibrate from end to end as the severed fragments drifted astern. On the following day (March 6) sighted the Isle of Madeira, and made a run of 275 miles. On the 7th made 216 mile, with fair weather and light winds. On Thursday, the 12th, fell in with a light N.E. trade in 16° N., 20° W. On the 20th crossed the Line in 20° 35' W., with all sail set, and sultry oppressive weather ; on the 28th sighted the Island of Trinidad, and made a distance of 158 miles. No great change in the weather occurred as the ship gained southing, and on the 13th April she was off the pitch of the Cape, in 46° S., and from 255 on the 10th had measured speed to 323, 332, 316 ; but unfortunately the wind fell light, and next day only showed 185. Unsteady winds then set in, rendering a test of the vessel's sailing powers totally impracticable ; but on the 21st she made a good step out of 342 knots, the next day 306,followed by 250 and 276. Then followed 318 and 290, and for several days she kept close to the 300, showing that under favourable circumstances she can do her work quite as well as anticipated. On Tuesday, May 5, in lat. 40° S., long. 13o° E., a dismasted ship was spoken. Her name was the John Kerr, from Liverpool bound to Melbourne under jury-masts, having lost her original spars in a gale. On communicating by signal, the vessel desired no assistance, having such jury-sails set as to enable her to complete her voyage. (It has been suggested this was the Loch Ard, but Captain Legoe is positive in her identity as the John Kerr.) On Thursday, the 7th, there was a light north-east wind, and the bearings of Capo Borda were N.N.E., distant 180 miles. On the following day the ship took a strong breeze and made the land. During the whole of the voyage the vessel has behaved most admirably, and continued in every way the early opinion formed of her, that she was a masterpiece of naval architecture. In speed she averaged over 300 miles for five consecutive days, and as a sea boat her master speaks well of her. The Hesperus is now at anchor at the Bell Buoy, and will remain there until there is a favourable tide for proceeding with little wind into harbour.

ARRIVAL OF THE HESPERUS WITH PASSENGERS AND IMMIGRANTS.

The new ship Hesperus, Captain Legoe, 1,700 tons, chartered by Mr. Francis S. Dutton, Agent-General for South Australia, for the conveyance of emigrants to Port Adelaide, sailed on Feb. 23 from Plymouth. This ship was built at Greenock for Messrs. Anderson, Anderson, & Co., of Billiter-court, E.C., expressly for the Adelaide trade.
Beside cabin passengers and a valuable cargo, she has on board 416 emigrants, equal to 348 statute adults. These have been carefully selected by Mr. Dutton, and comprise people of nearly all trades and industrial occupations, besides 45 single female domestic servants, who are in much request in the colony.
The emigrants consist, as is usual, of the classes described as "full passage paying," "assisted passage," some "free passage," and others part of whose passage money has been sent by their relatives already in the colony. They come from all parts of the United Kingdom and Ireland.
Dr. Belgrave is Surgeon-Superintendent, and Mrs. Collins Matron in charge of the single women; the latter selected by the British Ladies' Female Emigrant Society.


During the early days of colonisation there were few vessels ready to bring hither the bone and sinew of the colony. The Bucephalaus, Flora, Northern Light, Velocity, Roman Empire, and a hundred others, brought to our shores the people who have made the colony what it is. And now there comes a ship, owned to a great extent in the colony, which imports fresh hands to develop the industry of our favored land. Under the circumstances of bad weather people do not in general look their very best, but on Sunday afternoon we could not fail to see promising colonists in the new comers, who have been so anxiously looked for during the last days. From the trade classification we find there are carpenters, laborers. masons, miners, smiths, joiners, painters, domestic servants, weavers, cabinetmakers, and several others whose occupation is not properly defined. Dr. Belgrave, the Surgeon-Superintendent, speaks most highly of their conduct during the voyage, dwelling especially on that of the single men, than whom he has never sailed with a better lot, though he has been engaged for a long period sailing in charge of passengers of this class to America. It has been a matter of regret that during the early part of the voyage measles broke out amongst the juveniles, and nine deaths are recorded. There occurred two births, and as a general rule the health of the people has been above the average. This may in a measure be accounted for by the admirable space and ventilation of the ship, for in every way she affords every requisite for the good and comfortable transport of people.   As soon as the weather will permit she will be taken into harbor, after Dr. Duncan has concluded his visit of inspection. The following is a complete list of the emigrants on board the Hesperus :—
