White Wings Vol II. Founding Of The Provinces And Old-Time Shipping. Passenger Ships From 1840 To 1885
Louisa Campbell, 350 tons, Captain Darby, from London, arrived 9th July. The vessel put into St. Jago to repair damage sustained during a gale in the Bay of Biscay.
Nelson, 153 tons, sailed from London 15th August, arrived 15th December.
The Captain brought papers containing London comments on the destruction of Kororareka, which had caused a considerable sensation. The barque Enmore which was ready to sail for New Zealand, was immediately taken off the berth, as intending passengers refused to proceed and merchants were too much alarmed to ship goods to the Colony.
