From the South Australian Advertiser of Wednesday 18 September 1867 we see:
This immigrant ship moored in the Stream on Tuesday evening, after a passage marked by no incident of importance. The people on board are up to the average, and it is pleasing to notice that under the care of Dr. Graham there has been no case of sickness during the voyage.
She left Plymouth on the 22nd June, and cleared the Lizard the following day. Crossed the Equator July 16, and rounded the Cape August 14, arriving off the Leuwin September 9, and made Cape Borda on the evening of September 16, making the passage in 87 days.
Captain Hall reports falling in with fine weather and healthy trade winds both north and south of the Equator ; but on running down easting encountered very heavy weather, interspersed with gales from the southward, which lasted until the arrival in the Gulf.
