The Gananoque, one of tlie finest ships of her size ■which we have ever seen in our harbour, arrived on Wednesday from London, after the remarkably short passage of 85 days from Gravesend. She left the Downs on the 14th February, and rapidly cleared the channel, where very cold weather was experiencd for a day or two, and thence made excellent runs daily into the warmer latitudes, sighting the peak of San Antonio, on the 26th February N.E. trades, which had been met with early, were carried down to 3 oO' north, which latitude was reached on the 2nd March, when only 17 days out. About this time severa vessels wereseenand spoken. One was the ship Cornigha, from Calcutta for London, 69 days out. The passengers were much disappointed that they would not permit the sending of letters on board for home. The line was crossed on Thursday, March Bth, in longitude 23° 39' W., after which fresh breezes carried the Gananoque into the extreme west longitude reached, namely 31 ° 28: On the 17th March the island of Trinidada was seen and on the next and following days three foreign vessels passed in sight —a Frenchman, a Norwegian, and a Yankee. On the 29th March made Tristan d'Acunha, passed the longitude of the Cape on the 7th April, and sighted Prince Edward's Island'on the 10th of the same month. All-the way from the Cape to NeW Zea»
land the pace was kept up in first rate style—one day's work showing 266 miles run over, and the rest there and thereabouts. Favorable winds were
experienced on the coast and it was only too great a prevalence of southerly weather which prevented the approach to the port for 36 hours after its position was actually reached. Tlie voyage is described by the passengers as having been most pleasant in all respects, and they give credit to Captain Morris, with his officers, and to Dr. Brown, the Surgeon Superintendent, as having been the promoting causes in this respect. Amusements of all kinds flourished on board ; among which—to prove the universality of the defence movement—the formation of a Rifle Corps aiid the drilling of the same was prominent, so long as the fine weather lasted and the ship was
tranquil enough to permit the goose-step to be practised. The full and true-particulars of the voyage are written in the ' Gananoque Gazette,' a carefujly edited board-ship journal, a file of which we have been permitted to peruse. The names and number of the passengers by the Gananoque, who. are perhaps the best lot ever brought in, will be found below. The health on board throughout the whole voyage was generally excellent; except' that a few cases of measles appeared before crossing the line, and disappeared again before the cold weather was reached. Tlie two deaths which occurred were from causes as far as possible removed from epidemic. The following is a list of the PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENT IMMIGRANTS.
