Journey Notes

The brig Susanna was beating up the Gulf on Wednesday night; but being struck by a squall which split her main topsail, she came to anchor several miles below the stations at midnight. She has been four months at sea from Hamburg, and is in ballast; with 72 passengers on board, only a portion of which will land here, the remainder proceeding in the vessel to Melbourne. The passengers generally have enjoyed good health throughout the passage; but three infants died, reducing the number embarked at Hamburg. Captain Moller has formerly visited Port Adelaide as chief officer. He reports having spoken the steamer Lord Wellesley, under sail, in lat.30°32'S., long.11°8'E., bearing for Port Jackson, but he was unable to make out her port of departure. The Susanna sailed into harbour in the afternoon under the charge of Mr.Pilot Creer. Register 24/9/1858
