Journey Notes

The Castle Eden was signaled at day break, and was shortly after boarded and anchored by the pilot on duty. She is a fine looking vessel end on, having taunt masts and square yards; but on her length becoming apparent, she is not prepossessing, though a vessel of great carrying capabilities. Captain May courteously furnished an account of vessels spoken and lists of passengers and cargo, from which full particulars are given elsewhere. But no remarkable feature of the slightest importance beyond the ordinary routine of an immigrant vessel has occurred. Several friends of the immigrants visited the vessel yesterday from the Semaphore Jetty, and doubtless the number on board will be reduced considerably before she proceeds into harbour.
