From her appearance the Tarquin is a well-selected vessel, especially as from her light draught of water the bars were no obstacle to her progress into harbor. On her arrival the Assistant Health Officer having discovered that a single case of smallpox had occurred during the early part of the voyage, and seven of fever at a later period, she was placed in quarantine till the following morning, when Dr. Duncan was satisfied by his enquiries that she was in a perfectly healthy state, and at once accorded pratique.
The master was here some years back in the Eliza, and Dr. Pearce, the Surgeon Superintendent, has made several voyages in the service and has always been singularly successful in bringing out his charge, and on the present occasion, though threatened with such a fearful out break his attention and skill averted the calamity, and having but two births and the same number of deaths the people on board remain at 273. The immigrants are spoken of as of the usual class, there being amongst them a large proportion of assisted passage ticket holders ; but when the Shipping Reporter was alongside no one was allowed to board, consequently another opportunity will offer of inspecting the vessel and her occupants.
The following is the official list of the immigrants:
