ENTERED OUT.—August 20th.

Bella Vista, barque, 166 tons, G. Graves, for Melbourne, via Spring Bay.  

THE anxiously looked for emigrant ship Victoria was signalled on Taturday morning at 7 o'clock in Bull Bay, and soon after boarded by Pilot Bleach. At 2 p.m. the harbor master's boat started from   town with Dr. Turnley, who is acting for the health officer, Dr. Benson, who is absent from the colony. Mr. B. Travers Solly, Emigration Agent, Mr. Theodore Reese, the Government interpreter, and Mr.   L. Susman, arrived at Blackman's Bay shortly before 4 p.m., where the Victoria was lying becalmed. After the      

health officer had ascertained that there was no sickness among the passengers—the only event worthy of record being a birth—the party went on board. The Victoria brings eleven intermediate cabin passengers, and 176     emigrants, comprising 59 male and 55 female adults, 27 boys and 30 girls, between the ages of 2 and 12 years, and 16 infants. Dr Turnley pronounced the accommo- dation good. A Mr. Simmons acted as doctor to the ship, we believe it is his intention to practise here should sufficient inducement offer. Captain Edward Relich   reports having left Hamburg on the 20th April, and had   a prosperous voyage as far as the Meridian of the Cape   of Good Hope, which was passed on the 30th June; from that to sighting the Iron Pot, experienced nothing but gale and hurricanes from N.N.E., S.E., and S., with       continued rain and hail, in fact he says, he never had   such tempestuous weather for so lengthened a period  

during the whole course of his experience. She arrived   in harbour yesterday morning at 9 a.m., and anchored       in the stream opposite the signal station. Messrs. R.   Homan and Co. are the owners, and she is consigned to Mr Askin Morrison. Mr. Solly will make an official inspection at 9 a.m. to-day, so as to certify for the pay-     ment of the balance of the contract. She will be hauled   alongside the New Wharf to-morrow, when those   who are anxious to engage servants will have an opportunity to do so. The emigrants will remain on board for fifteen days, and in the event, at the expiration of that period, of any remaining, they will be removed to the New Emigrants' Home, in Liverpool-st.   The Victoria spoke tho following vessels:—On the 8th     June, the Benares from London to Rangoon, 50 days out, in lat. 21° 39' S., long. 37° 9' W. On 19th June, tho Volna from Valparaiso for Hamburg in lat. 34° 6' S., and long. 24° 15' W., and on 10th August in lat. 44° 46' S., and long. 146° 12' E., the American whaling barque   Lady, Captain Gabboll, of New Bedford, U.S.  

THE barque Bella Vista, G. Graves, commander, entered out at the Customs on Saturday for Melbourne, via, Spring Bay, and will sail in the course of two or three days.
