.... The Phoenician has made a remarkably quick passage of ninety-one days from the Downs - and, but from meeting with adverse winds along the coast, would have done it at least in eighty-five. She has spoken no vessels connected with these colonies. One of of her cabin passengers, Mr. E. Hall, died of consumption on the 24th April.

The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW : 1842 - 1954) of Wednesday the 25th of July 1849, Page 2.
SHOCKING CARELESSNESS. - We understand that during the voyage of the Phoenician to Sydney, some lucifer matches ignited and set fire to a mail bag, and destroyed a number of letters, and materially injured a number of others, which were put into fresh envelopes and re-directed by the Post Office authorities. The number destroyed we have not heard, but it is rumoured there were upwards of a hundred. There ought to be an official enquiry into the circumstances of a case of so much importance to the public. Of course every person who does not receive all the letters he expects, will imagine that they were destroyed in the Phoenician.
