The Glenlyon arrived on Friday night, bringing several assisted passengers, who are all in excellent health, and will be mustered by the boarding officer early on Saturday.
The Glenlyon arrived at the anchorage on Friday night, but was becalmed when a short distance to the southward of the Bell Buoy, and she there anchored to await the services of the tug. On Saturday morning the Gulf was enveloped in so dense a fog that it was only by the greatest chance the ship was boarded. The passengers all spoke in most favourable terms of the treatment experienced on the passage. They were then free to land as soon as the vessel reached the wharf. The people on board are all assisted passengers, most of them coming at the request of relatives and friends in the colony.
The Glenlyon is a fine-looking iron ship. She has made a very good voyage, although a considerable amount of contrary weather was experienced. Captain Reid reports leaving the Downs on April 6 with fine fair weather, which lasted but a short time. On getting away to tin southward had moderate north-east trades. On June 4 crossed the Line in 26' W., and subsequently fell in with south-east trades. Afterwards met with unsettled weather, which continued after rounding the Cape, and running down the easting in 44° S. From the low class and long sea the master anticipated heavy weather ; but fortunately the passage was completed without violent storms. Dr. Hamilton, who was on board as Surgeon Superintendent in charge of the assisted immigrants, came to the Port in the Beagle, H.M.S., about thirty-four years ago.
