Miscellaneous Shipping

The Electric made a most admirable passage from Plymouth, having left on the same day as the Murray, and arrived but 24 hours after her. On clearing the Sound, foul weather prevailed for several days, and in consequence she was some time before clearing the Channel ; but Madeira was passed on the 12th July, and the Line on August 1st, in 26° 50´ west. On August 29th, in 45° south, passed the meridian of the Cape, and the run along the southern parallel has been of a nature to test and establish the vessel's sailing qualities. She is a fine ship, and it would have been a matter of much regret bad she wrecked on the reef below Merino.

"....A melancholy boat accident, by which four lives were lost, occurred off Merino on Saturday afternoon, September 24 [sic]. In the morning of that day the emigrant ship Electric was driven close in shore, and was in imminent danger of stranding...."

Now that the equinoctial gales blow in extreme violence over the Gulf it is scarcely possible, with all the beautiful exactitude of instruments, to form a conjecture of the state of the atmosphere more than a very short time in advance, and on Saturday morning the sky was overcast, the glass falling, and such indications were visible that Captain Douglass expressed an opinion it would blow very furiously during the latter part of the day. In the morning, shortly after daylight, the Electric was seen from the stations to be clawing along the coast, about abreast of Onkaparinga, with one pilot-cutter off shore, and another closer to the land. When to the northward of Field's River she hove-to for a pilot from the Secret, but before he boarded her had drifted (with the wind W.N.W.) towards the shore. The captain had filled away on the port tack when Mr. Woolnough took charge, and finding it was requisite to tack ship the helm was put down ; but from various circumstances she missed stays, and, of course, making a stern board, drew her still nearer the shore, when the only alternative was to anchor. The starboard one was let go, and cable veered to the whole length. The port one in the meantime having fouled, the jibguys was let go, and stock and fluke, and 45 fathoms given it. By this time the vessel was so close to the rocky coast below Merino that a stone might have been flung ashore ; but the pilot cutter, which was in attendance, took out the master and beat up to Glenelg, where he was landed. From the ship a boat was lowered, and soundings astern showed that in the pitches consequent on the sea- way the vessel had not a clear foot of water under her ; consequently, with a falling glass and increasing breeze, her position was a most critical one, as the draught of water was almost 18 feet and It was impossible to give her more chain without touching the bottom. At about this time Captain Duff, the Harbour-Master at Glenelg, seeing the aspect of affairs, put off to the ship, and a telegram having reached Captain Wells that a vessel was in a dangerous position, steam was at once made on board the Eleanor, and without regard to the Ellen Lewis or the Northern Territory, she steamed down the river, accompanied by the Receiver of Wrecks and our Shipping Reporter. It blew fresh going down the Narrows, but on clearing the bar it was found that a heavy sea was on, and frequent squalls came down with great violence, rendering it impossible for a long time to discover the position of the vessel. At length a lull in the storm took place, and the Electric was made out lying under the high land ; and as the gallant tug headed down for her she would occasionally roll the paddle boxes completely under. Had It moderated the Eleanor would have been there by half-past 2, but the squalls were so violent that she was obliged to lay head to wind till they passed ; but at 3.30 she hailed, and was requested by the pilot to make preparations for taking out the women and children. But the difficulty of such proceeding in the heavy sea induced Captain Wells to suggest making an attempt to tow her off, as it would have been impossible to lie along side to tranship the people. To this Mr. Woolnough acceded, but he was determined to slip but one anchor, as it was desirable to secure the means of bringing the vessel up at the Lightship should she succeed in getting there. And now the power of the Eleanor received a more thorough test than she ever had before, for a new nine-inch Manila hawser was hooked on, and on a signal from the pilot she turned ahead. For a few moments the strain on the rope was excessive; but the continuous movement of the engines at length caused the vessel to yield some of the strain, as she slowly headed up to the anchor. Occasionally a heavier sea than the former one gave her a sheer, but it was only for a moment that the extra strain was brought on the line. There was an anxious moment, for the sky had but cleared for a short space, the western horizon being filled with a bank of heavy dense clouds, which promised more anon. The starboard anchor was slowly lifted to the bows, the jib and forestaysail, main, and maintopmaststaysail and driver loosed ; but it was found to be impossible to start the shackle of the port anchor. In a moment the next was taken, and a few blows shook out the pin, the buoy was streamed, cable slipped, and up went the staysail, it was a moment of intense feeling as the ship bowed and lifted to the heavy surges, and it was felt that any delay would be certain destruction. For more than a minute it seemed as if she was half inclined to fake complete charge, end go on shore broadside on ; but the steady and persevering strokes of the paddles were too much for her, and as soon as the canvas filled she headed along the coast line for a short time, and ultimately came up north-west. The emergency of the case had induced the sending down of royal and top gallant-yards, but all possible fore-and-aft sail was set, and the Eleanor did her part well. She was not 20 minutes clear of the anchors before the force of the gale came down, and which never for an instant abated till next morning. All the distance to the anchorage was accomplished in its fury, and in order to aid the tug to the full extent the upper maintopsail was set as soon as it could be done with safety. Some idea of the force of the wind may be formed, from the fact of the clip hooks of the spanker breaking short off in the height of a squall. At times the tow-rope slackened a little, and again came up with a jerk as tight as a harp-string. From half past 4 till half-past 7 the tug carried on a full head of steam, and on reaching the anchorage on rounding to the tow-rope parted at the ship's bowsprit shroud, and she at once anchored. The principal work of the trip being accomplished, the Eleanor brought up too, and there being too much sea to launch the boat, the morning's light was anticipated in slumbers in settees. When it broke there were 19 feet water on the bar, but as it was too late to commence heaving in 75 fathoms chain, the tug started for the Port, and will tow her up this morning. Before closing this notice it is proper to state the pilot desired our reporter to acknowledge his appreciation of the chief officer's valuable assistance, as well as the conduct of the crew and passengers, during the trying occasion ; and our reporter wishes to express his good opinion of Captain Wells's kindness during the trip.
The South Australian Advertiser, Monday 25 September 1865 p. 3

The arrival of the Electric on Saturday, September 23, after a most admirable passage, shows capital selection on the part of the Commissioners at home, and it is a noticeable feature that a long period has elapsed since so fine a ship has been employed. The 'tween decks are lofty, and ventilated by Edmonds's improved system, securing a perfect immunity from the bad odours occasionally prevalent where large numbers of people are congregated together. The main deck affords ample room for passengers to promenade, while the poop is so securely divided from other parts of the ship as to allow the single females plenty of space without being mixed up with other compartments. In the cooking arrangements a most decided improvement has been effected by the introduction of an entirely novel distilling apparatus, the patent of Graveley, and manufactured by Winchester. This apparatus distils 400 gallons of water per diem, cooks all the emigrants' victuals by steam, pumps water and fills the tanks throughout the ship and lastly, drives a continuous up current of air through the midship cowl of the ventilating gear. The Surgeon-Superintendent is lavish in praising this as a most important introduction for securing the comfort and health of the people. Notwithstanding this, some cases of whooping-cough made their appearance during the early part of the voyage, but only three deaths are recorded. After rounding the Cape diarrhoea was prevalent, especially amongst the juveniles, of whom 12 died ; indeed, the deaths were confined to the younger portions of the immigrants.
Dr. Barry has had great experience with immigrant, troop, and passenger vessels, and speaks most favorably of the conduct and general demeanour of his present charge, although in one or two instances an immediate exhibition or strict discipline was necessary ; but without a doubt the people are equal to the general standard, and will no doubt prove an acquisition to the province.
The number of children on the list preponderates, there being 72 under seven years, and 29 over 7 and under 14.
In the single females compartment there are a large proportion arriving to friends in the colony, and the balance are highly recommended by the doctor as superior servants (with one or two exceptions) and most desirable well conducted girls. There are a large proportion of miners amongst the single men, and a few in the married list are of the same occupation. The conduct-list presents the usual features and only one matter of serious import will be brought before the Board of Enquiry. Dr. Duncan's visit of inspection on Sunday morning will have established the fact that although difficult to fill the ships with eligible persons the task has been carried out as far as possible satisfactorily, and the people's conduct on the trying occasion alluded to elsewhere was quite sufficient to show the state of discipline to which they had attained. Fortunately the ship escaped from wreck, and anchored outside for a few hours, but it is almost certain that she will moor in harbor this morning. The following is the official list of the immigrants' names and other particulars. It will be seen from the industrial classification that a considerable number of skilled artizans are on board :—
