Journey Notes

The Constantine.- The voyage of this barque was protracted by strong westerly gales and extremely boisterous weather, which prevailed during the first 21 days of the voyage. The elements then assumed a character which promised a rapid voyage, but when its early close was expected, N.E. winds predominated, and the like continued for three weeks. The following vessels were spoken and signalled.- April 21st, in lat.30°S, lon.32°30'W., the French barque Sophia Caesar, from Singapore, bound to Havre, out 73 days, all well; May 4th, in lat.2°55'S, lon.21°59'W., the French barque Resolution, from Gibraltar, bound to Sumatra, out 48 days. May 5th, in lat.31°14'S, lon.19°10'W., signalled the English barque Levant Star, from London, bound to Sydney, out 54 days, with emigrants, all well; also spoke when near the Equator, the ship Stebonheath, but her destination was not ascertained.
