Forss, arrived in Lyttelton on Sunday morning after a rather protracted passage of 109 days from the Downs. She lands her passengers in good health, who appear to lie above the average stamp of immigrants. The Victoria made a bad start, meeting with contrary winds in the Channel, which caused her to be over 40 days before crossing the line. She was afterwards detained by putting into Pernambuco for fresh water, the water in the casks on board being unfit for use. She brings 139 adult passengers. The following is the * r L!

The names of her passengers (according to the 'Home News' of the 26th of December) were as follows :•—From Marseilles to Melbourne—Mr. Mrs. and Miss Hawkins, Mr. and Mrs. C. J.
