Return to SA Passenger Lists,1847-1886

iron ship Storm Cloud, 907 tons, Captain James Campbell, from Plymouth 12th February 1858, arrived at Port Adelaide, South Australia 28th April 1858

. . . . — 4th ship from England to S.A. with government passengers for 1858 ; —5— births and —2— deaths on the passage ; Dr. Augustus G. Davies, surgeon-superintendent.
In the Reports by the Emigration Officer, Dr. Duncan, there was often mention made in regard to Nominee's or General Emigrants ; the list below made a special effort to separate those into two lists, so, I have combined these but made notations alongside the family name, thus, General Emigrants = GE and Nominee = N. — Robert
ship Storm Cloud South Australian Government Gazette 12th August 1858
907 tons, sailed from Plymouth on the 13th February and arrived here on the 28th April, the voyage being accomplished in 75 days. She landed in the colony 335 souls. Two births and two deaths were the casualties at sea. The ship arrived in excellent order, and was well adapted for emigrants ; she was well lighted and ventilated. The provisions were abundant and of good quality. The people expressed themselves well satisfied with their diet and treatment. Of the entire number who were landed, 203 were nominated and 132 were selected immigrants. The Storm Cloud was commanded by Mr. James Campbell, and Mr. Augustus Davies was the Surgeon-superintendent, this being his fifth voyage in charge of emigrants. From inquiries which I have made, I am led to believe that the persons who have arrived as nominated immigrants are, for the most part, of a class for which there is little demand in this Colony; ordinary laborers, who are unaccustomed to the details of farming operations, have difficulty in procuring employment. There is at present a supply of such a class in excess of the demand ; while persons who are really good ploughman and accustomed to the various operations of husbandry find ready employment. Good domestic servants are also in great demand.
On Saturday night, 1st inst. [1st May], a serious scuffle occurred on board the ship Storm Cloud, lying in the Port stream, between some of her crew and a body of police who had been sent on board to quell a disturbance. The row arose from an attempt on the part of some of the men to break into the cabins of the single women.
In consequence of messages from the ship for the aid of the police, two men were sent on board to apprehend the disorderlies, but so decided was the opposition offered, that they had to beat a retreat. Serjeant Sullivan then proceeded on board with a body of six men, and having requested of Captain Campbell a reinforcement from the orderly portion of the crew, proceeded to the forecastle with combined forces. The Captain and the Doctor were also present. The entrance of the serjeant was the signal for dousing the police, and he was instantly saluted in the face by boiling tea, panikins of which followed in rapid succession. Before the serjeant could catch a glimpse of his assailants, he received a blow from a shin of beef bone, and one on the back from an iron belaying pin. The doctor also came in for a share of the tea. Eventually, the police, who were ably assisted by Captain Campbell, secured the rioters, who were brought ashore and locked up. — Adelaide Times.
