TERRIBLE STATE OF AFFAIRS ON BOARD OF AN EMIGRANT SHIP AT THE PORT PHILLIP HEADS.-In- telligence was brought to Williamstown, on Wed-  

nesday evening last, by Captain Wylie, of the brig Champion, from Adelaide, that a large ship, named the Ticonderoga, ninety days out from   Liverpool, with upwards of 900 govern-     ment emigrants on board, had anchored at the Heads. A great amount of sickness had occurred among the passengers, more than a hundred deaths having taken place, and almost a similar number of cases (typhus  

fever) being still on board. Nor was this all. The doctor's health was so precarious that he was not expected to survive, and the whole of the medi- cines, medical comforts. &c, had been consumed. The authorities in Williamstown, immediately   furnished the government schooner Empire, with the necessary supplies of live stock, beef, mutton, milk, vegetables, porter, wine, spirits, and a medi- cine chest, and Dr. Taylor, of the Ottillia, a gentle- man of much practical experience, went down in her to the Ticonderoga yesterday, to take charge, ac- companied by Captain Ferguson, the Harbour Master. The Lysander, ship, has also been taken up by Government as a Quarantine Hulk, and proceeds to her destination at the Heads this day, having on board stores sufficient for all hands for three months, when further, arrangements will be made, which we trust will ameliorate the fearful state of things on board. The foregoing are the only particulars known to our reporter at present, but, at all events, this case clearly exhibits the cruelty and ill-judged policy of crowding such a number of people on board a single ship, no matter her size, for a lengthened voyage. - Argus, November 5.
