30th ship from England to S.A. with government passengers for 1855 ; 2 births and 0 deaths on the passage ; Mr. James O'Donnell, surgeon-superintendent.

ship Thomas Arbuthnot
Arrived on the 12th September with 253 Government emigrants. She was commanded by Mr. Richard Martin, and Mr. James O’Donnell was the Surgeon-Superintendent. Before the final disembarkation 2 births added to the numbers originally embarked. There were no deaths. There were by this ship 109 young women, generally of the same class as those with whom we have become so familiar. It gives me pleasure to state that this ship also was in good order and under good discipline.
