The Jons Elbei:, s.s., which arrived on Wedn^Iay from London, »fser an admirable passage, is » sUaicer ivlonging :o thi Pacific Steam yavigitJon Compa»y which has l«en cbartered by th« Orient line to maka np the number of the Ceet She is very dmiUr in outline and appearance to the other ttmmers belonsr ln(T to the same arm, and but that she hat two fotueU it wcnld fct diinajlt to discern one from the otKt.

She was built by the eminent firm ol Jobs Elder and Co.. of Glasgow, in 1S70, and originally served in the South *''Tf'»' trade. Her gross tonnage is 4,121 or net 2,651 tons. The dimensions are Md'4 over all, 41~S beam by 35-2 depth of hold. The pro pulsion is from engines also by Elder, compound in verted cylinders, 60 and 104 inches respectively, and 4S-inch stroke, equal to 550 horsepower nominaL In every respect she is a remarkably fine vessel, and such of the passengers as landed here speak in favour able terms of her appointments and officers. She left London on January 29, and Plymouth on the 30th ; then had bad weather crossing' the Bay of Biscay, and on February 7 called atSt Vincent for coal; she then proceeded to the Cape, which was reached on February 22. The passage from there has been a most successful one, and on reaching the roads she was forty days six hours oat. She had on board 106 passengers in all for Adelaide, and 571 packages merchandise as cargo. On reaching the Cape of Good Hope the ship Hesperus, hence on the home route, had just touched there all well. The South Australian had also touched there on her ?voyage, and from both vessels letters were brought on by her maiL The rates of the vessel's progress from home were furnished by the purser as follows :— From Plymouth to St. Vincent, distance 3,249 miles, at 12*4 . knots ; from St Vincent to the Cape, 3,955 miles, at ? 11-9 per hour ; and from the Cape ? further stage of ; 5.5G0 miles. She reached Cape Borda on Wednesday morning, and on the same evening came-to in the roads, where she caused some consternation by hoisting the quarantine flag at the fore. It was afterwards feund to be an inadvertency, as - every person on board was in perfect health, and not a death had occurred during the passage. The vessel had no sooner come to anchor than she was cleared, and would at once take on board coals for the con tinuation of her trip to 8ydney, via Melbourne. The City of MADKn-, from London, has made a very good passage, and arrived on Wednesday at noon. She is the same vessel that left here on No vember 25, 1877, made a fast passage to London wheat laden, then on to Calcutta and back again to London, where she loaded up for this out voyage. She left the docks on tDecember 21, passed through the Downs on the 22nd, and had moderate breezes down Channel , i During the passage of the Ba- of Biscay she bad a continuation of very heavy gales from west to south west, and the foul weather continued until reaching Madeira on Jnne & She then had moderate north east trades, and crossed the Line on January 23 in :29° W. The south-east trades were moderate, and after passing the meridian of the Cape the easting was run over between 44' and 45°. She made Cape Borda on Monday at 11 o'clock. On reaching the roads the vessel anchored to await the tug, which would tow her into harbour on Thursday morning. The Booxet had both the Adelaide and Eleanor in attendance on Wednesday evening's tide, and was towed to the anchorage, whence she would sail with the first fair wind. The steamer Wakefield has, we, been on the slip since Monday last undergoing a thorough overhaul. Considerable improvements have been made in the ladies' cabin, a lavatory being also added. The vessel, which is being repainted and regrained, is having her saloon] refurnished. New rails and seals on deck have been put np for (passengers' comfort. The boat will resume her usual trips shortly, and n% no expense has been spared to give every comfort on board doubtless the improvements will be appre ciated. The South Acsnuxr-vi.-, from Melbourne, arrived on Wednesday afternoon after a very fine weather passage She left Williainstown at 5, passed through the Heads at 7.15, rounded Capa Otway at midnight, anchored at Warmambool at 7 a.m., and there took in 107 tons potatoes. Leaving at 1 p.m., she passed Cape Northumberland at S.30 p.m., ami was off Cape Jaffa at 3.30 of the 11th ; passed Cape Jervis at 12.30 and made a fine passage up the Gulf. Her arrival at the roads in company with the John Elder and the departure of the Otway and Ridge Park within the compass of a couple of hours, made matters pretty lively for a short time. The Raglan Cattle having finished her loading at Port Wakefield anchored at the Semaphore on Wed nesday, and as soon as her sea stock of water is on board she will sail for the United Kingdom. Vessel Spokes.— By the City of Madrid, on Feb ruary 25, in lat. 46', long. 80°, the ship Cape de Verd, from London, bound for Sydney, seventy-nine days out. She reported having been into Bahia for medical assistance for the captain, who was paralysed. CAPE JEEVIS. Jlarch 12, noon. — Socm Acsteaiiax, steamer, passing (ram Melbourne for Port Adelaide.
