ship Nile, 763 tons, Captain Sinclair, from Plymouth 11th November 1854, arrived at Port Adelaide, South Australia 19th February 1855

South Australian Register Tuesday 20th February 1855

Monday February 19th, 1855:- the ship Nile, 763 tons, Sinclair, Master, from Plymouth November 11th [1854], Doutty, Heward and Co., Agents.
Passengers: Mrs. Sinclair ; Dr. Young, surgeon-superintendent in the cabin and the following emigrants in the steerage. . . .
5th ship from England to S.A. with government passengers for 1855 ; 8 births and 2 deaths on the passage ; Dr. J. Young, surgeon-superintendent.

ship Nile
Left Plymouth on the 11th of November 1854. She arrived in Port Adelaide on the 18th February 1855, with 312 immigrants. Two deaths and eight births took place before disembarkation. In consequence of some complaints regarding the proper issue of stores, the Immigration Board assembled to investigate the matter. It appeared to the Board that certain irregularities had existed for a considerable time at sea, but the emigrants had not made their complaints known to the proper quarter to obtain redress at the time, the surgeon-superintendent and master of the ship being in ignorance for some time that such irregularities existed ; but when made aware of the evils, they were immediately rectified. The Board considered that, had the surgeon-superintendent maintained proper supervision, such irregularities would have been discovered by him at an earlier period. A complaint was made by a woman who lost her child at sea, that this child had been neglected by the surgeon-superintendent. The Board found that no entry had been made in a medical journal of either the sickness or the treatment of this child. The Board, from the evidence adduced at this investigation and also from personal observation of the conduct of the surgeon-superintendent while he remained at Port Adelaide, were of the opinion that he was quite an unfit person to be again entrusted with the charge of emigrants, and that the certificate for return passage should be withheld. His Excellency The Officer Administering the Government was pleased to approve to approve of the recommendation of the Board. This ship arrived in a dirty state between decks. It is astonishing that very little sickness prevailed during the voyage, only one death having occurred at sea-the second, which was caused by a sudden attack of croup, taking place while the ship lay in Port Adelaide.
