Journey Notes

This beautiful ship, on her first voyage, arrived yesterday, as elsewhere announced, with 267 Government emigrants under the careful medical superintendence of Dr.Chambers, late of Kooringa. The William Hammond has been only 89 days out from Southampton, and the emigrants, in general, have arrived in a most healthy state, the only exceptions being a few cases of hooping-cough among the young children, of whom four have died during the voyage.
