Tho Iserbrook lias brought 103 German immi- grants, all reported to be in good health. They are a respectable and industrious looking class of people. There was one birth on board but no deaths. They speak in high terms of the cap- tain's kind treatment of them during the passage. It is intended that the river steamer Bremer
will bring them all up to Brisbane, and will sail
immediately for Hong Kong in ballast.

Among the emigrant ships lost in 1855 are two to Australia, &c., the Iowa, which sailed April 29, 1854, and Guiding Star, which sailed 9th Jan, 1855, and which have never since been heard of. The former of these belongs more pro« perly to the losses of 1854, but when the report for that year was written, there was still hope that she might be safe. 'The latter vessel had on board 481 government emigrants, with officers and crew amounting to 62 persons, in all 543 souls. She was last spoken on 15th February, a little to the eastward of the Cape of Good Hope. After that her fate is left to conjecture. But as vessels which «wre making the passage between the Cape and Australia about the same time en countered very extensive fields of ice, in some instances received severe damage, we cannot but suppose that her loss must be thus accounted for.
In the charterpartíes it is now stipulated by the Emigration Commmissioners that their passenger ships shall not go beyond a certain south latitude; but during, 855 the ice is said to have come un usually far to the north, so as to have rendered any such restriction vlrt'ially useless. The oom missioners also state- "Deep as is our regret in having to record this loss, we cannot but feel that, having despatched to various colonies, dur- ing the fourteen year ending'in December last, 686 ships, carrying upwards of 200,000 persons, without the loss of a single life by shipwreck, except in this instance, we have in reality great cause for thankfulness, notwithttanding the acci dent to the Guiding Star. ibid, June21.
