ARRIVAL OF THE GOSFORTH, WITH GOVERNMENT IMMIGRANTS.

The population has been again augmented by the arrival of 388 souls by the above vessel, which is one of the superior class recently selected by the Commissioners. She is 810 tons register, and from

the space in 'tween decks is computed to carry 333 statute adults. She has almost that number on board, having embarked 389 souls at Plymouth, and sailed on October 3, with Dr. C. H. Graham as Surgeon-Superintendent This appointment has also been a happy one, for under Providence his care and watchful attention have resulted in an arrival with a clean bill of health, no serious sickness having occurred, and but six deaths are recorded, entirely amongst the juveniles. On the other hand, there was one birth. On the usual visit of inspection the greatest satisfaction was expressed. It must be noted that Dr. Graham has been constantly in the service for 11 voyages, and consequently had considerable experience. His efforts were seconded by the adaptability of the ship to emigration purposes and the ready coales- cence of the master (Captain Wight) in carrying out the regulations. The ventilator of Dr. Edmunds was fitted to the Gosforth, and found fully to answer all expectations, keeping the 'tween decks perfectly supplied with fresh air; but the distiller of Normanby is not so well spoken of as on previous occasions. But this has probably proceeded from some of the machinery or tubes becoming defective. It is to be regretted that the old arrangement of the single females' compartment is still retained especially as it has been a subject of constant   complaint during the past few months. It would be so easily remedied that surprise has been ex- pressed that the fore-and-aft bulkhead had not been long ago condemned, for it only muddles the lower deck into a couple of long narrow strips of space, instead of affording the whole width of the vessel's beam. This, however, will doubtless

be altered in some of the next arrivals.
