Immigrant Ship Hydaspes 1876

ARRIVAL OF THE HYDASPES. From The South Australian Advertiser (Adelaide, South Australia : 1858 - 1889) of Saturday the 2nd of September 1876 on Page 6 & 7

The Hydaspes, which arrived on Friday, has brought her immigrants here in excellent health, attributable in a great measure to the excellent discipline enforced by Dr. Husband, who is no novice at the task, having made the transport service his specialty for several years.

This experience has told well on the present occasion. At Plymouth there were 665 souls put on board, and on the voyage there were six births and three deaths.

The spar-decked ship looked like a castle out of the water on nearing her, and a host of faces capped the rail from stem to stern. The upper deck was divided in the usual way-the single girls taking the after end, and the men the bows, while the waist was left for the married couples and families. The saloon below deck is the only place exempt from the immi-grants, and part of that is taken up by hospital and lavatory.

Down below, the single girls to the number of 84 have very good quarters, ven-tilated by the system of trunk ways amidship. The side ports have also been used in fine weather, but being so near the water line were not depended on. As a whole the girls look a superior class, and as soon as practicable Doctor Duncan boarded the ship, mustered them, and arranged for the tug to be in early attendance to take them to the Port in the morning.

The next compartment before the saloon on the main deck is occupied by lavatories and offices for the married couples and families, who, to the number of one hundred and eleven couples, with 174 children, were all stowed in this space. The close system of berths has been adopted, and having great deck space there is a free passage at the back and a vast open space in the mid-ships where children can roam at pleasure. The height is not so great as in many of the recently arrived vessels, but the ventilation seems quite perfect, and the whole space is very clean. This cleanliness is the result of a very good regula-tion on the part of the doctor, who has insisted on the 'tweendecks being kept clean by manual labor only, and no water permitted.

The single men, to the number of 185, have charge of the fore deck, and for cleanliness vie with the other compartments, notwithstanding the cumberous timber bunks which incommode the whole space. Dr. Husband speaks in praise of the single men, whose behavior on the passage has been much to their credit. This is borne out by the appearance of the men, who are a very fair importation. The doctor approves of the system for berthing the married people, but objects to the single men being bunked when the old-fashioned hammock would be so much preferred, and would be far more conducive to health.

A very great advan-tage in the Hydaspes has been the possession of a good distillery apparatus, by which 700 gal-lons of water can to produced every 14 hours. The vessel is of larger draught than usual, and therefore anchored in the roads till a rise in tide.....
