Journey Notes

This Government ship, from Southampton June 16, has arrived, as elsewhere reported. The selection of the emigrants seems to have been made with care and judgement, and their general appearance is very prepossessing. During the voyage one of the male emigrants jumped overboard whilst labouring under great mental excitement, but the ship was not making more than four knots at the time, and through the strenuous exertions of the Blundell's officers the man was rescued from the deep.
