The Southern Cross,
Saturday June 3rd 1865

(From Papers Past Site on Internet)


The ship Lancashire Witch, 1,574 tons, Captain George King, anchored off the heads yesterday afternoon from London, with the largest number of passengers that ever came to Auckland in one vessel, viz, 490. She left Start point on the 13th February, and passed outside the Cape de Verde Islands. The equator was crossed on the 6th March, twenty-two days out, in long. 28.30 west. The meridian of Greenwich was reached on the 24th of April, sixty-four days out, thus taking forty-two days to run from the equator to that point. The reason of this long passage was that no Southern trades were met with and after reaching lat. 20deg. She had a series of S.E. gales. The easting was run between 45deg. And 46deg. Sighted Tasmania on the 21st of May and the North Cape on Thursday morning, being 100 days from her departure from England. Notwithstanding the long voyage, and the great number of passengers, the ship appears to be in a very clean and comfortable condition. A volunteer brigade was organized during the voyage, and the members regularly drilled by Sergeant-Major Roberts. Dr. Wills, the father of the famous Australian explorer, has come out as surgeon of the ship, and the passengers have presented him with a testimonial in acknowledgement of his services. Twelve children have died during the voyage, and there have been five births. All the passengers are sent out by Captain Daldy.

The Lancashire Witch was in this port about nine years ago, but since then has been entirely refitted at a cost of Pound 22,000. She belongs to Messrs. Seymour, Peacock, and Co.; and has been chartered by Messrs. Shaw, Saville, and Co. She is consigned to Mr. W. Graham.
