Elliott, for Macquarie Island. This day, the ship William Shand, Capt. Kenn, for Port Jackson. Passengers, Mr. Bonner, and two or 3 other persons.
Remain in the harbour, H, M. colonial brigs Duke of York and Prince Leopold ; the ships Macclesfield and Heroine; & the colonial schooner Governor Brisbane.
As the Heroine left England some days pre viously to the ship William Shand, which arrived here several weeks ago, we derive no intelligence by this vessel but what has already been given in our Paper.
The total number of passengers by the two ar- rivals this; week from England, is 106; namely, 27 per the Macclesfield, and 79 in the Heroine; of which 66 per the latter vessel, including 41 wo- men and children, are the remainder of the persons who had unluckily engaged their passage in the ship Hope, which was seized, after having been chartered for these Colonies, for taking a greater number of passengers on board than is allowed by law. In consideration of the great expense and loss unavoidably incurred to these individuals, owing to their long detention in England after the time first fixed upon for their sailing, His Ma- jesty's Government granted them passages (the greater part free of all charge), in the Heroine.
According to the late London Papers, and to the notices posted up at Lloyd's, there are now six
merchant-vessels destined for these Colonies.
It is worthy remark, for we believe the like never occurred before, that the whole of the pas sengers, nearly 30 in number, who came out on the William Shand, were wholly provided with fresh provisions from the time of their leaving England till they arrived in the River Derwent; and it is the more remarkable, that the vessel did not put in any where to refresh on her passage, which is computed to be 16,000 miles.
