ARRIVAL OF THE ASSAYE

The fine iron ship Assaye, 1281 tons, Captain D McRITCHIE, under charter to the NZS Company, arrived in port on Saturday, from England, with a general cargo and 319 immigrants. The usual Health-officer’s inspection resulted in a clean bill of health being given and the vessel was at once admitted to pratique.

An unusually fine-weather passage has been experienced by the ship. She left London on the 3rd September and took her final departure from off the Start on the 12th. Sighted the Island of Madeira on the 26th September and crossed the Equator on the 11th October. The trades proved light.

The meridian of the Cape of Good Hope was traversed on 6th November and the eastings run down in 45 deg. south latitude. Made the North Cape of New Zealand on the 21st instant after experiencing very light winds. Down the coast had light westerly winds and calms. Sighted nothing on the passage since crossing the line.

The Assaye is owned by Messrs J & W Stewart, Greenock, Clyde where she was built in 1868 by Robert Steele. She is a fine specimen of marine architecture and is a sister ship to the beautiful Parsee which came consigned to Messrs L D Nathan & Co. some time since. She is classed at Lloyd’s AA1100. [During the eighties these ships had the yards stripped off their mizen masts, and made very handsome barques. Photo of the Parsee page 24 in ‘The Last of the Windjammers’ Vol. II by Basil Lubbock.] The following is a list of births and deaths during the passage:-

  1. I have a 3D plaster-framed picture of this ship.My name is McRitchie, but I am not aware of a D. McRitchie in our family, although my Grandfather McRitchie was a Naval Captain and did go to India.
