The Murray was sighted early on Monday morning, and was supposed to be the overdue ship Albert Victor until the signal-flags were made out. It was past noon before she anchored to await the next day's tide, and meanwhile Dr. Duncan, the Health Officer, paid his visit of inspection, and at once completed his mission, so that the passengers were free to land as soon as they chose.
All the appointments of the Vessel are in good order, not withstanding that severe weather was experienced from Cape Leuwin to the close of the voyage. Captain Wadham reports having left London on June 29, but owing to contrary winds down the Channel it was July 7 before he left the Lizard.
Then light airs and calms continued until August 3, when the Line was crossed in18° 20' east long. On August 4 the Vessel fell in with the south-east trades, but they were very light, and not a continuous run for two days bad been got up to the vessel's sighting Tristen d'Acunha on August 20. She then shaped a course well to the southward, and in 37° 17' S. crossed the prime meridian on August 24, and that of the Cape in 41° 14' on August 31.The Southern Ocean was crossed between 41° and 42°, but there was not a fair wind for 48 hours. On September 25 the craft was off the Leuwin, and from there the voyage was marked by galesfrom N.E., which prevented the ship reaching Kangaroo Island until Saturday evening.
On Sunday the Murray was becalmed in the Gulf, and on Monday she reached the Bell Buoy. The personnel of the ship has been changed, only Mr. Barley and the steward being old hands in the line.
