--- Cruickshank, Smart & Co., agents

The African was signalled yesterday morning shortly after day break and dropped anchor in the harbour about 9 a.m. She left London on the 7th October, and after a most agreeable run down Channel, put into Plymouth on the morning of the 10th, from which port she again sailed at midnight on the 11th. She experienced very heavy breezes from the S. and S.W., while off the coast of Portugal; sighted the Burling rocks in the vicinity of Lisbon on the 21st, just 10 days out; passed inside Palma, one of the Canary islands, on the 27th, the wind being westerly; caught a light N.E. trade, which she carried to 7 N. Crossed the line on the 20th November, light variable winds prevailing for several days. In about 3 N. was favoured with a light S. wind, which however, soon parted company. Passed to the leeward of the Island of Trinidad, making the meridian of the Cape on the 17th December, in 47. Ran down her easting to 48 30'; sighting Price Edward's Island; and passing to the N. of Kerguelen's Land, for 10 days laid off and on in consequence of adverse winds from the E., accompanied by thick heavy weather; passed no less than seven whalers, among which was the lady Emma, of Hobart Town. From this had a fair run to Van Diemen's land, which she passed on the 19th inst. On the 26th, when in lat. 34, long. 167, encountered a circular storm, wind coming E.NE., shifting to N.W. and W., and moderating on the 27th. Sighted the Three Kings at half past 4 a.m. on Saturday last. At 3p.m. rounded the North Cape, strong Southerly winds prevailing as far as the Poor Knights, when they became light and variable; rounded to under the lee of the Little Barrier at midnight, and at 4 a.m. yesterday, made sail for the harbour, which she reached at 8.30 a.m., 100 days from Plymouth. Captain Gibson has visited this colony on several occasions, and in the London took some of the first settlers, which were sent out under the auspices of the New Zealand Company. He has also visited Canterbury, and took home the first entire cargo of Wool from that settlement in the Midlothian. He reports 3 births and 2 deaths during the voyage, one an adult, the other a child, who embarked in a very sickly condition. The African brings an addition of 125 passengers to our population, and comes into harbour in first-rate order
