Steamship of 3400 tons. Mail carrier with some passengers on service
between San Francisco, Honolulu, Fiji, Sydney and New Zealand under
contract to Governments of NSW, Australia  and New Zealand.
This was her second voyage to New Zealand and she was a sister ship to the
"City of New York.". It probably made other voyages as it was a regular
mail carrier for the Pacific Mail Steamship Company before the company ran
into financial difficulties after 1876 and the company ceased operations.
