CAlTLOCH, from London— 3553 cases, 1 parcel, 437 boxes, 62 hhds., 412 bales, 1,037- kegs 340  sash-weights, 3 stoves, 20 pots 153 camp ovens and covers, 2 trusses, 31 tanks  52 gr.  Tierces, 525 pieces, 86 bags, 1 hamper, 415 casks, 6 drums, 107 sheets, 24 jars, 2 bottles, 27 crates, 11 tierces, 57 grindstones, 5,453 bars, 107 sheets, 878 qr.-barrels, 100 half-barrels, 101 pkgs, 4,551 bundles, 50 tons of coals, and 1,293 deals.


The Caitloch has made a very good passage, and just hove in sight from the stations on Sunday evening, with the wind about northwest. The boat at once started, and after along cruise succeeded in boarding her, but the night looked so threatening that the brig Emma, which was astern, was not visited.

The Caitloch left London and proceeded down as far as the South Foreland, where she was run into by a Russian steamer named Czarowitch. In crossing the ship's bows the steamer fouled the head gear, and at once knocked away the jibboom and head gear. The cutwater was started, and the figurehead washed up on the beach on the following day. The forecastle deck was torn up, the anchor shank bent, and the cathead knocked away. The damage done was so great there was no other alternative but to return and rent, a course of procedure which occupied about 10 days, and then another start was made. Down Channel she had fine weather, and on March 14 was well away clear of the land. Southing was rapidly made, and on April 4 the Line was crossed in long. 25°. The prospect of south-east trades was very limited till half way to the tropic of Capricorn, when a light south-easter set in. After rounding the Cape a high latitude was sought, and the Crozets sighted. This course was a very good one, for the cross passage from the Cape's meridian has only occupied 25 days. On boarding her enquiries were made relative to the Goolwa, Bundaleer, and other vessels which the Loch has distanced by her fast sailing. Several very old colonists have returned by this ship, amongst them Mr. Meyer, of the firm of C. L. Meyer & Co., who has been absent for twelve months on a visit to the old country.

During the voyage the only interesting episode was the birth of a little lady stranger, who, in commemoration of the ship, will hereafter be known by her name. As the ship has on board several assisted passengers in addition to those in the cabin. Dr. Duncan will visit for customary inspection on Monday morning, and then on the first tide offering 19 feet 6 inches water the Caitloch will proceed to the Magazine ground for discharge of 20 tons of gunpowder, and subsequently moor in harbour. The Caitloch is a very fine iron ship, which has been recently built, and although it was dark when boarding enough was noted to show that she Is a superior vessel.
