Journey Notes

The Grand Trianon.- On January 10 the Grand Trianon left Liverpool, and on the 15th Scilly was passed during the prevalence of heavy southwesterly weather, which continued until the 16th, when it moderated, and changed to light east and south-east breezes. The southeast trades were felt on the 10th. February, in lat.15° 30' N., long. 28°W., and nine days subsequent to this period the equinoctial was crossed. She doubled the Cape of Good Hope on the 22nd. March, and arrived at the anchorage on Sunday night at a late hour, after being 103 days on the passage. This is about an average passage at this season of the year. The Grand Trianon on her arrival here in June, 1855, had not occupied as many days as on the present trip. From the report of Captain Clark, there appears to have been no entry of any importance in the logbook, the only incident worthy of notice being a narrow escape of collision with a large ship on the Line. On her arrival in the Gulf she came to anchor and fired a rocket, which was answered from the pilot station by a flash light, and shortly after the boat started, but the weather was so boisterous that it was impossible to land in time to forward particulars for Monday's publication. Dr.Duncan exhibited his usual promptitude by paying his visit of inspection on Monday morning, and the steam-tug signal being made, she will no doubt proceed into harbour without delay.
