ship Star Queen, 836 tons, Captain Manning, from Southampton 1st October 1854, arrived at Port Adelaide, South Australia 30th December 1854

South Australian Register Monday 1st January 1855
Saturday, December 30th :- the ship Star Queen, 836 tons, Manning, Master, from Southampton October 1st 1854
. — 30th ship from England to S.A. with government passengers for 1854 ; 8 births and 10 deaths on the passage ; F.H. Church, surgeon-superintendent.
 
ship Star Queen . . .

. . an 836 ton 3 masted ship, built in 1854, Sunderland, 161.0x32.0x20.3, J. Shepherd, London.

Arrived from Southampton on the 29th December, having made the voyage in ninety days. Ten deaths and eight births occurred at sea. The emigrants in this ship also were well selected. The matron, appointed in England, was superseded for incompetency and another appointed by the surgeon superintendent in her room.
Diarrhoea prevailed to a considerable extent throughout the voyage. The ship as well as the bedding and persons of the emigrants were clean and tidy. One case of malignant cholera occurred the day after the ship sailed, and proved fatal in five hours. No other case of cholera is reported after the sailing of the ship, through dysentery and fever prevailed more or less throughout the voyage.
The steward of the ship charges against the quantity of medical comforts laid in according to the charter party, twelve bottles of porter, five bottles of brandy and two bottles of wine, delivered and consumed by persons visiting the ship on Government account. This, if it be correct is a very improper mode of disposing of stores intended for the relief of the sick while at sea.
The surgeon-superintendent suggests that the fore hatchway should be covered with close iron grating, locked down and that this hatchway should not be allowed as a means of communication with the between decks. Many of the married women are disposed to have communication with the sailors and this fore hatchway affords far too ready a means of access to the forecastle, and from the forecastle to the emigrantsí apartments. This suggestion seems so proper that I think it ought to be immediately adopted. The main and after hatchway are sufficient for all necessary communication with the deck. The after ventilator, which communicates with the single womens' apartments, is used as a means of transmitting letters to and from the single girls. The remedy to this is simple and inexpensive; a fine wire grating at the centre of the shaft will prevent all communication, and not interfere in the slightest degree with the ventilation. So constant are the complaints made by the surgeon superintendents of the facilities thus afforded of communication with the single women, that it appears desirable that the evil should be immediately rectified.
