Journey Notes

The Nugget.- Having had a continuance of fair weather with a fine vessel in his command, Capt.Bond has made the passage from Southampton in 71 days, during which time very favourable winds have prevailed. The Equator was crossed on the twentieth day from fina de parture, and the longitude of the Cape of Good Hope was crossed in 43°S. The passage throughout has been made without more than twice testing the patent reefing apparatus introduced by Cunningham, with which the vessel is fitted, and which on those occasions was found to answer admirably. The following are the vessels spoken or otherwise communicated with:- On February 10, in lat.1°30'N., long.20°40'W., the Dutch ship Walcheren, 69 days out from Batavia; On February 20, the British brig Salus, from Lion's Island, bound to Plymouth, in lat.24°30'S., long.28°58'W., on February 21, exchanged signals with the French barque Blenheim, 50 days out from London, bound to Madras, in lat.27°23'S., long.25°4'W.
