South Australian Register Saturday 22nd July 1854

Friday July 21st, 1854:- the barque Ostrich, 425 tons, Lishman, Master, from Southampton April 20th 1854
16th ship from England to S.A. with government passengers for 1854 ; 4 births and 4 deaths on the passage ; John S. Ireland, surgeon-superintendent.

barque Ostrich
Arrived in this port on the 21st July, after a passage of ninety three days ; bringing to the Colony 188 souls. Four deaths and four births occurred during the voyage, or before final disembarkation. All the deaths happened during the fourteen days in which the emigrants are allowed to remain on board. The Surgeon of this vessel also suggests the propriety of having the lying-in hospital removed from the single women’s apartments. He complains of a deficiency of some of the medical comforts, such as porter and brandy. The emigrants arriving in this vessel were of a most eligible class ; and the single women found immediate employment.
