Arrival of the Marlborough
This vessel arrived at Bluff yesterday, with 183 government immigrants, and has apparently a clean bill of health. She will be inspected this morning by the health officer, and her passengers will no doubt be landed without any unnecessary delay.

Arrival of the Marlborough
The Albion Company’s ship Marlborough left The Tail of the Bank, Greenock, on the 16th August, and passed the Tusker Lights (Waterford) on the 20th. Experienced indifferent winds to the equator, which was crossed on the 20th September. The longitude 24 deg W. caught good S.E. trades and cleared the Southern Tropic on the 27th. On the 3rd October westerly winds set in, and the meridian of the Cape of Good Hope was passed on the 10th.

Her casting was run down on the parallel of 45 deg S. From the Cape to New Zealand, unsettled weather with a low barometer was experienced, and very good running was made. Sighted the South-west Cape and the Solanders on the 3rd, having made 1990 knots during the last week. With heavy, severe, wintry weather the passage from land to land was accomplished in eighty days.

The Marlborough is a new ship, this being her second voyage. She is a very handsome model and is commanded by Captain Anderson, who has paid several visits to the colony, this being his first trip however to Bluff.. She comes into port in good order, with all well on board. No births or deaths occurred, and the passengers all appear to be in a satisfactory condition.

The Marlborough is now lying opposite the pilot station, and will proceed on her voyage to Port Chalmers as soon as she lands the immigrants for Bluff.

The Immigrants
The remainder of the Marlborough’s passengers, consisting of the single men and married couples, were yesterday brought to town. They are a fine lot of young men, and seem by their appearance, likely to make creditable colonists. Five of the single men met with engagements, 20s a week. Twelve of the single women were hired out at wages varying from L30 to L40 a year. Those requiring servants are informed that they may obtain them today, after 10 o’clock. We have already published a list of occupations.

Some misconception appears to have risen as to the reason why Mr Lillicrap did not go to the Bluff to meet the vessel. We are therefore desired to point out that Mr Colin Allan, is Chief Immigration Officer for Otago, and as that gentleman was himself present, there was no occasion for the attendance of Mr Lillicrap, the local officer.
